Rain Barrel Sale 2021

The Village of Downers Grove and The Conservation Foundation are teaming up to offer rain barrels for sale. Rain barrels are large containers that capture rainwater at the end of a downspout and store the water for later use, such as watering plants. Using water from rain barrels lowers water bills, helps reduce flooding, and can have a dramatic impact on water quality in our rivers and streams.

The 55-gallon barrels are made from reused plastic and come equipped with a spigot, a screw off lid, a garden hose threaded overflow, and screen in the top to help keep out bugs and debris.

Pricing  

  • The cost per barrel starts at $60, plus sales tax.
