As part of the Woodbury Earth Day Festival at Hollow Park on Saturday, April 30, the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition (PRWC) will host a Rain Barrel educational workshop. Learn the benefits of installing a rain barrel to capture rain for yourself, conserve water and reduce runoff. In a one-inch rainstorm, a shed measuring 10 feet by 10 feet would more than fill a 55-gallon rain barrel. If you capture that water and save it for later use, that will add up to a lot less runoff over the course of the year and a big savings on your water bill or less burden on your private well.
The Rain Recycle Diverter Kit provided uses a flex-fit diverter design. The kit creates a closed system. The unique feature of the diverter is the back flush. When the barrel is full, the water backs into the downspout stopping more water from going into the drum so you do not need an over flow, you do not need to cut off the gutter, or worry about mosquitoes.
