The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management is hosting a rainwater rain barrel workshop Aug 21 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Redan Recreation Center, 1839 Phillips Road in Lithonia.
Collecting rain water in rain barrels for use during dry months is an excellent way to conserve water and reduce your water bill. During the workshop, citizens will be instructed on rain barrel maintenance and water conservation landscaping.
The rain barrel workshop is open to the first 20 DeKalb County residents who sign up. This is a “hands on” workshop where residents will make their own rain barrels with DWM assistance.
The cost of the workshop is $30, which includes all the materials to make your own barrel. The deadline to register is Friday, Aug. 17.
For more information and to register, contact Michael O’Shield at 770.724.1456 or by email at email@example.com.
