Event Description

Is one rain barrel not enough free water for you?  If you're looking for a do-it-yourself rainwater system with increased capacity, no permits, and easy installation, this workshop is essential for you. A 275 gallon tank can water approximately 500 square feet of land per week, drastically reducing summertime water bills. Come learn how to retrofit two 275-gallon tanks into a rainwater system for your home or business.

This is a two-part series.   Attend both classes and leave with the resources and know-how to retrofit tanks for your own rainwater harvesting system.

Part I: Tuesday, May 8th 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This classroom session will cover the concepts, metrics, and mechanics of rainwater harvesting with tanks and general water conservation information.

Part II: Saturday, May 12th 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

This session will be hands-on with step-by-step installation of a retrofit system.

Registration: Pre-registration is required. Register online or call Hannah at 733.8307.

Instructor: Anitra Accetturo, Water Conservation Program Coordinator for City of Bellingham

Cost (for both workshops): $40 members, $50 non-members
