Rain, rain go away...wait stay!
Rain barrels have been used for centuries to conserve water and you can lower your water bills and improve streamways by reducing water consumption.
Fifty-five gallon barrels can be incorporated into your landscape by planting shrubbery or flowers around it or by painting the barrel as part of a creative art project. Rain barrels are subject to applicable laws and provisions including but not limited to the Overland Park Municipal Code.
Three local organizations sell barrels for a low cost and offer instruction on how to assemble it, or you can build your own.
