Free Rain Barrel Home Delivery Program 

The West Basin Municipal Water District is launching a free, contactless Rain Barrel Home Delivery Program. 

The program will provide qualified district residents with free rain barrels worth approximately $100 per unit. The 55-gallon eco-friendly rain barrels help residents collect rainwater to use for landscaping and reduce urban runoff into local storm drains. One rain barrel can save up to 620 gallons per year. This year, 1,000 free rain barrels will be available for direct delivery to eligible homes. 

“Capturing rainwater with a free rain barrel from West Basin is a great way to water your garden, prevent runoff pollution from flowing into waterways, and save money,” said West Basin Board President Harold Williams. 

The rain barrel distribution program is part of a larger district-wide water efficiency program that was launched in 1990. Since its inception, the program has helped the District to conserve more than seven billion gallons of water through the distribution of more than 300,000 water-saving devices. Since 2014, West Basin has given away more than 8,000 free rain barrels to local residents. 

Registration is required. Some conditions apply. Rain barrel deliveries will be scheduled in groups, with lead times of up to a few weeks between order and delivery dates.
