Rain Barrels

Rain Barrels

Get your very own LRN Rain Barrels!

Rain Barrels are a great way to reduce stormwater runoff from your property and utilize the rain water for your flowers, shrubs, trees, lawns, indoor plants or koi ponds. You can also use the water to wash your car or pet, rinse your feet, tools, or muddy/sandy boots or sandals.

Stormwater runoff, and the bacteria, toxins and sediments that it picks up and carries, is the number one source of pollution in the Lynnhaven River.

A rain barrel is easy to install on your downspout. It will have a spigot on the front for a watering can and/or a soaker hose and an overflow spout at the top. The intake at the top is screened to prevent mosquito infestation. You can install a single barrel or connect multiple barrels.
