Rain Barrel Workshop
The Lexington Countywide Stormwater Consortium will host a “Build Your Own Rain Barrel”
Workshop on Thursday, October 30, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at the Public Works
Building located at 440 Ball Park Road, Lexington. Representatives from Lexington County Public Works Stormwater Division will present information about stormwater runoff and rainwater harvesting before helping attendees build their own rain barrel to take home with them.
Workshop attendees will learn how to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff from their
property through rainwater harvesting. Rainwater harvesting is simply the capture of rainwater
on your property for reuse. Rain barrels typically collect runoff from a roof; this water can then
be used to water a garden, wash a car, or a variety of other outdoor uses. Register for this event and find more information by contacting Tina Blum, Lexington Soil and Water Conservation District, at (803)359-3165 or firstname.lastname@example.org
