Last Chance to Take Advantage of
$75 Rain Barrel Rebate
As of January 1, 2017, the rain barrel rebate being offered by the Metropolitan Water District will be reduced from $75 per barrel to $35 per barrel. Residents who want to take advantage of the $75 rebate need to purchase their barrels and submit their rebates before the December 31, 2016, deadline.
In order to help interested residents purchase rain barrels, the City of Fountain Valley is once again partnering with Rain Barrels Intl. to host a Rainwater Harvesting Class and Truckload Sale on Saturday, November 5, 2016, at The Center at Founders Village, located at 17967 Bushard St. in Fountain Valley. The rainwater harvesting class will be held from 9 to 10 a.m. and will cover the benefits of rain barrels, proper installation, rebate information and water conservation techniques. Pre-purchased rain barrels will be available for pick up from 9 to 11 a.m.
Water conscience residents can pre-purchase rain barrels online for $85 each by visiting www.rainbarrelsintl.comand clicking on “City of Fountain Valley” under the EVENTS tab. Each rain barrel, up to 2 barrels per household, is eligible for a $75 rebate from the Municipal Water District if submitted by the December 31, 2016, deadline.
