In response to the popularity of the first event, the city is once again partnering with Rain Barrels Intl. to host another rainwater harvesting class and truckload sale on Saturday, June 18 at The Center at Founders Village,
The rainwater harvesting class will be held from 9 to 10 a.m. and will cover the benefits of rain barrels, installation, rebate information and water conservation techniques. Pre-purchased rain barrels will be available for pick up from 9 to 11 a.m.
Thanks to the city’s contribution of $10 per barrel, Fountain Valley residents can pre-purchase rain barrels online for $75 each (regularly $85 each) by visiting www.rainbarrelsintl.com and clicking on “City of Fountain Valley” under the EVENTS tab.
Each rain barrel, up to four barrels per household, is eligible for a $75 rebate from the Municipal Water District, making the rain barrels FREE after rebate. For more information and to apply for the rebate, visit www.socalwatersmart.com.
Only rain barrels purchased online by June 16, 2016, are guaranteed to be available for pick up at the event, and proof of Fountain Valley residency, such as a driver’s license or water bill, is required at time of pick up.
The Center at Founders Village is at 17967 Bushard St.
