The Finger Lakes Institute’s “Store the Storm Rain Barrel Program” is aimed at conserving water and decreasing stormwater flow and surface runoff erosion. Constructed “Store the Storm” rain barrels are being sold with installation and maintenance instructions and a “Store the Storm” sticker, as well as an opportunity for new owners to participate in an ongoing rain barrel water quality monitoring study conducted by the Finger Lakes Institute.
Each rain barrel costs $35 includes constructed white rain barrel minus cinder blocks and custom overflow.
Barrels MUST be picked up from the HWS Red Barn on St. Clair St. in Geneva, NY Saturday, August 25th 3:00 pm-6:00 pm or Sunday, August 26th 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm and can not be held for alternative pick up time.
