Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water and minimize your impact on the environment. Rain barrels capture rain from gutters and downspouts and store it for later use. Below is a set of resources provided by the Loudoun County Soil and Water Conservation District (LCSWCD). Each year, LCSWCD has rain barrel workshops where residents can either make a rain barrel or purchase one.
Note: Residents who live in a homeowner's association should review their covenants to determine if rain barrels are allowed in their neighborhood.
