What is a Rain Barrel?                                                                                                                                          Rain barrels and cisterns not only help reduce stormwater runoff but can offer irrigation to landscapes throughout times of drought. Cisterns are larger than rain barrels and can be gravity fed or enhanced with a booster pump to deliver irrigation to larger areas.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Rain barrels and cisterns are a good option if the soils on your property do not drain very well or if you are in a location where the groundwater is close to the surface.
