The Philadelphia Water Department is offering rain barrels to local businesses, libraries, and any faith-based sites, free of charge for both the barrel and installation process! Besides just looking great, these decorative rain barrels allow the capture of storm water and help prevent the overflow of our sewer system. The process is simple and quick, with just a phone call away!

Local residents can also receive a rain barrel, after attending a mandatory workshop. Workshops are offered several times a month.

For more information or questions about the program or criteria, please contact Jeanne Waldowski at 215-685-4945
