Rain barrels lower summer water bills
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, lawn and garden watering makes up nearly 40 percent of total household water use during the summer.
“One way to reduce outdoor water usage and conserve water is to collect rainwater,” said Jennifer Fishburn, a University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator.
“A rain barrel is a system that collects and stores rainwater. A typical one-half-inch rainfall will fill a 55-gallon barrel. It is estimated that a 55-gallon rain barrel can save about 1,300 gallons of water during the summer.”
