September 15, 2022
West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) announced today that it will host five drive-through rain barrel pick-up events at locations throughout the service area to give away a total of 1500 barrels. The event series will begin on Saturday, September 24, 2022 and conclude on Saturday, November 19. Eligible program participants must register at http://www.westbasin.org/rain-barrels to reserve up to two free 50-gallon rain barrels valued at approximately $80 each.
“The West Basin Board is happy to bring back our popular rain barrel program in person again this year,” said West Basin Board President Donald L. Dear. “These water-saving devices are a way to catch and use any rain that may come this rainy season. Plus, as drought conditions persist, we are seeing how much water we are using outdoors and are looking at our landscapes differently to see how we can become more efficient in the long run. A rain barrel is one of those ways.”
The five cities and dates to pick up a free rain barrel include:
• Palos Verdes Estates, September 24, 2022
• Lawndale, October 8, 2022
• Redondo Beach, October 29, 2022
• Inglewood, November 5, 2022
• El Segundo, November 19, 2022
