Old Technology, New-Found Popularity

This spring, 660 rain barrels were sold (55-gallon size) at an annual truckload sale sponsored by the Western Lake Superior Sanitary District and the Regional Stormwater Protection Team, of which Minnesota Sea Grant is a member. The 660 barrels account for a stormwater storage capacity of 36,300 gallons. The water can be used to water lawns and gardens or wash cars.

Over the past two years a total of 1,760 rain barrels have been sold at the annual event.
