Collecting rainwater is an excellent way to save resources. With ½” of rainfall, you can collect 300 gallons of water from 1,000 square feet of roof.
Attend a Rainwater Guardian Workshop to learn about:
- Reducing the use of potable (drinking) water for lawn and garden irrigation
- How rainwater harvesting helps protect local waterways and the environment
- Rain barrel setup, use, and maintenance
- Creating shallow rain gardens that are attractive and functional
St. Petersburg utility customers may receive a free rain barrel at a later date upon completion of a Rainwater Guardian Workshop.
