RIVER ACTION's Rain Barrel Sale!
October 13th only!
Be ready for fall rains! River Action will be selling its rain barrels on Saturday, October 13th from 9am-Noon. Come to the east parking lot between Java Java and Fitz-Rite Custom Bath and Kitchen on River Drive between Federal and Tremont Streets. We'll help you load it into your vehicle and be able to answer all your rain barrel related questions.
These recycled, 60-gallon food-grade plastic barrels are equipped with a down-spout diverter, a spigot, overflow valve, and mosquito screen. Rain barrels effectively capture and store runoff from roofs during small to moderate storms which can then be used to irrigate lawns and landscaped areas between storm events.
Barrels sell for $75 each for a barrel with a standard sized diverter, and $80 for a larger diverter. Similar barrels retail in stores and catalogues for $135. You may pay by check or cash at the time of sale, or pre-order on-line at www.riveraction.org. Rain Barrels are sold on a first-come-first-served basis.
If you have questions call River Action at (563) 322-2969, or go online at www.riveraction.org.
