Rainwater harvesting systems capture and store rainwater from your rooftop. Capturing this water:
reduces pollutant runoff – Your rain barrel is collecting water that would otherwise flow quickly over impervious surfaces gathering pollutants that get carried into our rivers (including petroleum, fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, plastics, and more).
provides the ability to “spread-and-soak” - You can spread rainwater at a controlled pace, in a desired location, for a particular purpose.
minimizes erosion – Your rain barrel is helping to slow down water that would otherwise flow quickly to our rivers contributing to erosion.
conserves drinking water – Using rainwater for non-potable uses (watering your lawn, landscaping, and even washing your car or dog) reduces the demand on our resources.
This one-time rebate is issued as a direct reimbursement to homeowners at a rate of $0.50 per gallon, based upon your new system's capacity.
For example, a 100-gallon system would yield a $50 rebate after installation. To qualify, rainwater harvesting systems must hold a minimum of 50 gallons. The rebate maximum per property is $300.
Residents of Greene County and Christian County (counties in southwest Missouri) are eligible to receive this rain barrel rebate.
