Conserve water, reduce runoff and water your garden for free!  You can do all these things with your very own rain barrel.

CRWP has helped hundreds of residents convert 55-gallon plastic barrels originally used in food production into runoff-reducing tools. CRWP is no longer in the rain barrel business, but below are some helpful resources for assembling your own barrel.
