Passyunk Square was gifted 25 rain barrels by the Philadelphia Water Department, but we only have 3 left!

A rain barrel collects and stores rainwater from a rooftop. By using a rain barrel at home to temporarily hold back rainwater during a storm, you can help reduce the pollution of our creeks and rivers; our drinking water source. The collected rain water can be reused to water lawns, gardens, window boxes or street trees.

If you reside in Passyunk Square, you could receive a free rain barrel if you:

– are the legal homeowner
– have a square downspout
– are willing to submit installation photos
– are willing to fill out a one-time survey
– are willing to do monthly monitoring
– are willing to submit a monthly survey

*Surveys will be located on the Philadelphia Water Department’s website
