Deadline to Order Discounted Rain Barrels is May 10

The City's annual Rain Barrel Event is a great way to get a big discount (save $47.25) on a rain barrel that you can place under your downspout. Then you keep saving when you use the rainwater you collect to water your garden and save on water bills. 

Barrels cost $72.70 for Somerville residents (a $47.25 savings over the usual price of $119.95). 

Thursday, May 10, is the deadline to purchase. Order barrels online at Pickup is at the DPW, One Franey Road, on Saturday, May 12, between 9 a.m. and noon.

  1. I just wanted to note that I've had a couple of these for years and they are terrific. And still holding up quite well.

    We definitely saved on the water bill for the garden.
