Water Wednesday

Capture the Rain!

Did you know, an average home with a 1,000 square foot roof can generate approximately 600 gallons of water during a 1-inch rainfall. Collecting and using water in rain barrels can help reduce water demand on public and private water supplies while also reducing pollution and flooding!
