RPU To Offer Rain Barrel Rebates


 A $10 rebate is available to all RPU water customers on the purchase of a rain barrel or the materials to construct one.  Rain barrels can be placed under a roof downspout to collect stormwater runoff that can be used to water your lawn and gardens. This reduces runoff that carries polluntants into streams and rivers.

 Rain barrels:
• Conserve water in the summer months
• Help lower water bills
• Reduce water pollution
• Help keep excess water out of the sewer system
• Are easy to install

Here is a link to the rebate application:
