The city of Pflugerville has rain barrels for sale each spring via www.cityrainbarrelprogram.org.
The rain barrels come in six different colors to better match your home and landscape. Choose from beige, black, deep green, gray, oak wood and terra cotta.
The last day to purchase was in April 2016 for this year's order.
“In conjunction with the city’s water conservation initiatives, the barrels provide an environmental collection of water for residents,” water conservation manager Darrell Winslett said. “The barrels are cost-effective as they provide an opportunity to reuse rainwater for lawns and gardens instead of pulling the water from the city’s water supply.”
Pickup is held in conjunction with the Public Works Department annual open house each May.
The Rain Barrels offer these friendly features:
•various shapes including a flat back flat design that can hug walls
•bug-proof screen to keep out mosquitoes and other pests
•3/4” valve to conveniently connect to a standard garden hose
