Rain Barrels - “Get Barreled” Program

Help Your Garden #GetBarreled

Surfrider has partnered with The Ecology Center on their #GetBarreled program to promote the installation of rain barrels. Rain barrels can be the first step in Retention: slowing down rainwater and directing overflow into the landscape, or collecting it as needed. To get a sense of the impact, a house with a 2,000 square foot roof in an area that gets 30 inches of rain a year can generate 37,200 gallons of water for your landscape a year and keep that run-off out of our Ocean!  Learn more about the #GetBarreled program.
