Don’t Let Good Water Go to Waste
Want some FREE water for your gardens or lawn? Want to help protect Lake Michigan? Installing a rain barrel is an easy way to do your part to protect Lake Michigan and become a Fresh Coast Guardian. Rain barrels and cisterns capture and store rainwater for outdoor water use like gardening. Rain barrels and cisterns are similar, although cisterns tend to be larger and sometimes are installed underground.
