Rain Barrels are great ways to reduce stormwater runoff from your property. Stormwater runoff, and the bacteria, toxins and sediments that it picks up and carries, is the number one source of pollution in Virginia Beach’s waterways. They help prevent pollutants such as fertilizer, fluids from cars, pesticides from entering our waterways.
Utilize the rain water for your flowers, shrubs, trees, lawns, indoor plants or koi ponds using captured water from your rain barrel. You can also use the water to wash your car or pet, rinse your feet, tools, or muddy/sandy boots or sandals.
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.
