County offers Half Price Rain Barrels!

by Argia Designs


Finally rainwater catchment is catching on in San Diego!


San Diego County is offering HALF-PRICE RAIN BARRELS for County Unincorporated Residents this August 28 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Water Conservation Garden, 12122 Cuyamaca College Drive West, in El Cajon.


It may seem like it never rains in San Diego but did you know that just 1 inch of rain falling on a 1,000 square foot roof will yield 600 gallons of water? Instead of letting all of that water run into the stormgutter, that's water that could be used for watering a veggie bed, potted plants, rinsing your wetsuit, or watering your native garden!


Check out the County's Rainbarrel Page for more info!

You can help protect our coasts from every threat they face.

Your gift will help meet our goal of $500,000 by December 31!
