Rain barrels are containers that collect and store rainwater from rooftops via downspout that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, creeks and rivers. Because it does not contain minerals, chlorine, fluoride or other chemicals, the stored rainwater in barrels provides a supply of water that is ideal for gardens, potted plants/flowers, lawns, and even bicycle and car washing. Rain barrels reduce storm water pollution and conserve water. The Village’s participation with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) to provide free rain barrels to residents has concluded. As of January 1, 2017, MWRD is returning to their previous program of selling rain barrels to residents as a cost. Interested residents may contact MWRD directly at 312.751.6633 or visit www.mwrd.org.
