Rain Barrel Workshops
Rain barrels help to conserve water and reduce erosion from stormwater runoff. The Water Conservation Office has partnered with the Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Division to offer rain barrel workshops. In this hands-on workshop participants work with ACC staff to build their own rain barrels and learn how to install them at home. Participants leave with their own, ready to install rain barrel!
