Join SPLASH (https://www.splashco.org/) at E-470’s Service Center in Aurora on Friday, September 22 from 1pm-3pm for a rain barrel workshop.
The cost is $20 and you will receive a 55-gallon rain barrel, connector kit, and instructions on how to install the rain barrel next to a downspout at your home.
Can’t make this workshop? No problem, we will have more workshops next year. Email Lisa Knerr, Environmental Program Manager at LKnerr@arapahoegov.com to get on the list.
Collecting the rain is legal in Colorado, homeowner associations cannot prevent you from getting a rain barrel, but they may have aesthetic or location requirements.
Rules for rain barrels in Colorado include the following:
-- Maximum of 2 barrels at home with a combined storage of 110 galls or less
