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.

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.
