Event description
What's one of the simplest, high-impact ways to save water and help protect the Aquidneck Island watershed? Using a rain barrel.

About this Event

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the rain barrel workshops have been postponed to an unknown date. Thank you for your interest. Please email schurgin.ericd@gmail.com if you would like to be notified when the date gets rescheduled.

Thank you for your understanding. -Eastern Rhode Island Conservation District Team

----------------------

Turn a used fifty gallon container into a rain barrel for your home!

We are sponsoring TWO rain barrel workshops:

  • April 18 at Bristol Parks & Recreation Building (101 Asylum Rd., Bristol, RI)
  • April 25 at Middletown Public Works (19 Berkeley Ave, Middletown, RI)

You will be provided with everything you need to build your own rain barrel. We will guide you through the process of converting these containers into allies for a cleaner Narragansett Bay. We will begin with a presentation on how home lawn and garden practices impact our waters and how we can make a difference and will include hands-on prepping and painting of the rain barrels.

Containers generously provided by Coca-Cola.

$35/barrel

------------------------------------------

For conservation and for pollution prevention, installing a rain barrel to collect and store rainwater for use on your lawn and gardens is a simple but powerful way to make a difference for the Aquidneck Island and Narragansett Bay.

Lawn and garden watering typically makes up 40% of total summer household water usage, according to the EPA. Plus, the biggest threat to our waters today is polluted runoff water that runs off our roofs and into our streets and alleys, carrying all the oil, sediment and other contaminants that it picks up along the way into our lakes, rivers and streams.

The Eastern Rhode Island Conservation District (ERICD) is a non-profit, quasi-public organization that functions as a facilitator for meeting the needs of the local land user in the conservation of soil, water and other related natural resources.
