Make Your Own Rain Barrel

Collecting rainwater in rain barrels for use during dry months is an excellent way to conserve water and reduce water bills and the DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) will host a Rain Barrel workshop for DeKalb citizens on Saturday, Sept. 25 at the Tucker Recreation Center (4898 Lavista Road in Tucker).

During the workshop, citizens will be instructed on rain barrel maintenance and water conservation landscaping. 

The Rain Barrel workshop is open to the first 30 DeKalb County residents that sign up.  This is a “hands on” workshop where residents will make their own rain barrels with DWM assistance.

The workshop fee is $65 which includes all the materials to make your own rain barrel. The deadline to register is Monday, Sept. 20.

To register, contact Alicia Pennie at (770) 621-7266 or atpennie@dekalbcountyga.gov.
