Rain Barrel Pre-Sales are back for Limited Time

In an effort to help citizens save money and water, the City of Corpus Christi's Water Conservation program will hold its second Rain Barrel Sale.

The rain barrels are offered to customers at a discounted price of $47, tax included, which is less than half the retail price. The rain barrel holds 55 gallons and collects rooftop runoff from a home's rain gutter and distributes it into the barrel. The water captured can be used for many purposes including watering your lawn and washing your car.

The rain barrel sale begins today and runs through April 29, 2016. Product details and ordering information can be found by visiting www.UpCycle-Products.com. Order forms are located on the right hand side of the website. Make sure to select the form for Corpus Christi. Citizens can also call (815) 735-9583. Rain barrels can only be purchased with a debit or credit card. There is a limit of two barrels per household.

The pre-ordered rain barrels must be picked up Saturday, May 7, 2016, at the Utilities Department located at 2726 Holly Road, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This will be the only day the pre-ordered rain barrels will be available for pick up.
