Those who visited the Spring Expo at the Lee Center perhaps saw the rain barrels on display by the Stevens Soil and Water Conservation District booth. Judy Johnston with the SWCD told the KMRS Community Connection that people can still order rain barrels, which work great for catching runoff from rain events.
“We have gotten some rain barrels, and we’re planning to get more,” said Johnston. “We were out at the Spring Expo and people have pre-ordered those. And they’ll be ready on May 1st, and that’s when our tree pickup and everything is, too”
If desired, multiple barrels can be easily hooked up together for extra capacity.
