Stormwater Services Provides Rain Barrels to Abilene Citizens
City of Abilene Stormwater Services in partnership with the Coca-Cola Company are providing free rain barrels to a limited number of Abilene citizens on October 12, 2018 at the Environmental Recycling Center at 2209 Oak Street. The event will start at 8 a.m. and last until all of the rain barrels have been given away.
Rain barrels collect and store rainwater from rooftops that would otherwise be diverted to local storm drains or streams. Rain barrels can be connected to gutter down spouts and help store water for when you need it most. With an installed rain barrel, home owners can save
thousands of gallons of water each year.
Rain barrels are delivered on a first come first served basis and will be limited to 250. Rain barrels are limited to one per car and individuals must show identification and Abilene water bill.
