“BUILD YOUR OWN RAIN BARREL WORKSHOP” @ Lexington County Fire Services Building
Oct 25 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
"BUILD YOUR OWN RAIN BARREL WORKSHOP" @ Lexington County Fire Services Building

Rain barrels are used to harvest rain water from your roof.  The water can then be used to water your garden, wash your car, and for any other outdoor use.  Rain barrels help you save money, save water and reduce stormwater pollution.  The Lexington Countywide Stormwater Consortium is hosting a Build Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop on Friday, October 25th beginning with a class from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at Lexington County Fire Services, 436 Ball Park Road, Lexington SC and culminating with actually making  a rain barrel to use at your home in the garages at Public Works nearby from 10:30 – 12:00 p.m.  The registration deadline is October 21, 2019.  Class space is limited to the first 25 paid registrants.

At this workshop you  will learn about stormwater runoff pollution, how rain barrels help reduce this pollution that enters our waterways, and be shown how to make a rain barrel to use at your home.  For more information about the workshop or to register for it please call  Mary Hite, Stormwater Outreach Assistant, Lexington County Community Development at (803) 785-8121 or send an email to [email protected]
