Discounted Rain Barrels Offered to Conserve Water
The City of Yukon Stormwater Quality Division is partnering with the Central Oklahoma Storm Water Alliance (COSWA) to support the use of rain barrels to conserve water.
Yukon residents have the opportunity to purchase discounted rain barrels online at http://www.upcyclerainbarrel.com/yukonok.html. Prices start at $61, plus a $2.50 online handling fee. The barrels are available in gray, black, terra-cotta and blue. Be sure to order before March 5 to ensure delivery!
Rain barrel usage saves money, reduces stormwater pollution, conserves water supply resources, and is better for plants and gardens. Want to know what a rain barrel looks like? Stop by the Mabel C. Fry Public Library at 1200 Lakeshore Dr. to see an example.
Rain barrels ordered online can be picked up between 10 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on March 9 Yukon Public Works, 1305 Industrial Drive.
