Rain harvesting class, rain barrel sale is Saturday
In response to the popularity of the first two events, the city of Fountain Valley is again partnering with Rain Barrels International to host another rainwater harvesting class and truckload sale on Saturday, Sept. 24 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, proper installation, rebate information and water conservation techniques. Pre-purchased rain barrels will be available for pick up from 9 to 11 a.m.
Water conscience residents can pre-purchase rain barrels online for $85 each by visiting www.rainbarrelsintl.com and clicking on “City of Fountain Valley” under the EVENTS tab.
Each rain barrel, up to two barrels per household, is eligible for a $75 rebate from the Municipal Water District, dropping the cost of the rain barrels just $10 after rebate. For more information and to apply for the rebate, visit www.socalwatersmart.com.
Only rain barrels purchased online by Sept. 22, 2016, are guaranteed to be available for pick up at the event.
