With spring showers popping up, capture the rain water coming off of your roof and put it work on your flowers and garden plants with an IVY rain barrel.
The City of Columbia Public Works Department Stormwater Utility is again partnering with Rain Water Solutions to provide our customers with the opportunity to purchase a complete rain barrel kit at a greatly reduced price.
The kit, made in America and out of 50% recycled materials, includes a 50 gallon rain barrel, a pre-plumbed quarter turn spicket to attach your garden hose, and overflow tubing. A diverter kit is not required for installation and you can connect multiple rain barrels together to increase storage.
The cost of the kit is $65 (normally $129). You can see the product displayed at the following locations:
