Rainbarrel Sales Event
The City of Brantford has been selling rainbarrels at a subsidized price to City residents since 2004. Rainbarrels help to conserve municipally treated water by capturing oxygen rich rainwater. This program is an important feature of the City’s Water Conservation strategy, as it provides an affordable tool to help residents reduce their water use outdoors.

Why Should You Use a Rainbarrel?
Chlorine-free, oxygen rich rainwater is better for your plants, so save your municipal drinking water for drinking!
You can water with rainwater at any time regardless of summer lawn watering restrictions bylaw.
Rainwater is free – capture water that nature already provides and save money on your water bill.
Capturing stormwater runoff controls moisture levels around the foundation of your home.
Capturing rainwater helps protect rivers & streams from runoff pollution by diverting water from storm sewers.
