Coming Soon: Rain Barrels

Did you know that rain barrels will soon be available to residents of Skokie, free of charge, through the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District? Rain barrels capture rainwater from your roof, saving it for when you need it, rather than sending it straight into the sewer system (thereby lessening sewer overflows and flooding) and are an easy way you can help Skokie go green.

Want to learn more about the program? Interested in signing up for a rain barrel of your own? Just contact the Skokie Engineering Division at 847/933-8231. You can also learn more about rain barrels, including how to install, use, maintain and paint your barrel by going to the MWRD’s Rain Barrel page, online at https://www.mwrd.org/irj/portal/anonymous/rainbarrel.
