Participants will learn about water conservation and the many benefits of using rain barrels. Rain barrels capture rainwater from your roof that you can use later when it’s dry for thirsty gardens. They also help prevent rain from becoming polluted stormwater runoff, the biggest remaining threat to clean rivers and our Great Lakes.
One FREE rain barrel will be provided per owner-occupied household and registration is required. If you have received a free rain barrel in the past from MMSD, you are not eligible to receive another free rain barrel. Although anyone can attend the workshop, you must live in MMSD’s service area (https://www.mmsd.com/about-us – includes all of Milwaukee County and some other municipalities) to be eligible for a rain barrel.
You will receive a certificate to pick up your free rain barrel at Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District’s (MMSD) main lobby Monday through Friday between 8 am and 4 pm.
Registration limited to first 30 households.
This event is free, but we encourage you to purchase a beverage from the student entrepreneurs at Newline Café! As a school-based enterprise, Newline Café offers students entrepreneurial experience in every facet of running a business. Every drink you purchase not only helps our students hone their barista skills, but trains a future accountant, designer, communications specialist, or independent business owner.
