Los Angeles Sanitation and Environment’s Watershed Protection Program will host a free Zoom webinar on Saturday, March 5, at 10:30 a.m. to educate homeowners about the benefits of rain barrels and rainwater harvesting.
In addition to rain barrel maintenance tips, participants will learn about rebates available from the city for purchasing rain barrels. The webinar is open to all, and city of Los Angeles residents will be entered in a random drawing to win a $25 home improvement store gift card.
Jesse Savou, of the BlueBarrel Rainwater Catchment System, will provide step-by-step instructions on how to maintain rain barrels at home, and will highlight how rainwater can be used to irrigate lawns and minimize the amount of water flowing into storm drains and waterways. With the more than seven inches of rain in Los Angeles last December, a 1,000 square foot roof with properly installed rain barrels would have captured more than 4,200 gallons of rainwater for irrigation.
