Water is one of our most important resources; protecting it, conserving it and thinking of future generations is essential.

The City of Aurora is helping by implementing a Rain Barrel Program to provide low cost rain barrels to City of Aurora residents. The program encourages participation in a pollution reduction strategy, by bringing awareness to water resource protection and water conservation.

Here is how it works: A Rain Barrel collects water from roof downspouts and stores it for later use.

How to Order

Rain barrels are available in four colors: black, gray, blue or terra cotta. And at just $60 plus tax – about 40 percent less than online retail prices – rain barrels are a great deal for you and the environment. For more information or to place an order for pick up or home delivery, call The Conservation Foundation at 630-428-4500, ext. 132.
