Rain Barrel Program at Falls Township
Falls Township currently has 55-gallon Rain Barrels available for purchase at the Falls Township Municipal Building.
A rain barrel is a great way to keep stormwater out of the system and cut down on your water bill! Only ¼ inch of rainfall runoff from the average roof will completely fill a typical barrel providing an ample supply of free “soft water” containing no chlorine, lime or calcium. Rainwater is ideal for watering plantings, vegetable gardens and lawns as well as washing your car or windows. In the event of a water shortage, drought or water supply contamination, a rain barrel provides you with an emergency water supply.
Collecting rainwater is easy using a rain barrel! Simply position the barrel below the water downspout of your roof. The barrels are neutral in color to easily blend in anywhere around your house. Full installation instructions as well as an overflow hose, clamp and faucet are included with the rain barrel at a price of $57.
