[ARCHIVED] 2014 Spring Rain Barrel Program

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: April 22, 2014

“One of the first programs initiated by the Community Stormwater Management Committee was the rain barrel discount program,” says Village Trustee Steve Nero. “I want to recognize and thank Mike Graham, one of our resident volunteers, who suggested the discount program as a way to inspire residents to get involved and participate. We ended up selling over 250 rain barrels, which is an all-time record for sales through the Village program.”

The 2014 Spring Rain Barrel Program provides a 50% discount off regular prices for rain barrels sold through the Village of Westmont. The program begins on Earth Day, April 22 and runs through May 30. Following are the details of the program:

* Available to all Westmont residents & businesses
* $35 per water barrel (typical retail price around $70)
* Limit of no more than 2 water barrels at the discounted price per Westmont address
* Water barrels must be installed and used within the Village of Westmont
* To further promote the benefits of rainwater barrels, residents are asked to take pictures of installed barrels and send to the Village (
* This program will be in effect from Earth Day, April 22, 2014 through Friday, May 30, 2014 (rainwater barrels will be sold at their usual price once the program is over)
