Cleaner, Greener Pawtucket
Installing rain barrels is an easy way for property owners to harvest stormwater runoff on their property, which reduces the stress on the city’s drainage system. The water retained in the barrel can be used to water grass or flowers, and in doing so, the homeowner lessens their impact on the environment and saves money on their water bill.
DPW also partnered with the Pawtucket Arts and Culture Commission and the Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Arts to paint and decorate some of the barrels.
To receive a free rain barrel for your property, please fill out the online application and send to email@example.com or call 401-728-0500 ext. 317 by July 31, 2017 (deadline was extended from June 15th).
