GRCA Partnered with Selling Rain Barrels this Spring

In Community

Port Hope – The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) has partnered with in selling rain barrels this spring. For a cost of $55.00 (includes taxes) you can receive the many benefits a rain barrel can offer:

  • You can water with rainwater anytime, regardless of lawn watering restrictions
  • Soft rainwater is preferred by your plants
  • Rainwater is free – save money on your water bill
  • Reduce water use on your water supply well, especially during the dry months
  • Capturing stormwater runoff controls moisture levels around the foundation of your home
  • Protects our rivers and streams from runoff pollution by diverting water from storm sewers

For only $55.00 you will receive a rain barrel that includes a leaf and mosquito filter basket, an overflow adaptor, a spigot and an overflow hose.


Pre-ordered rain barrels will be available for pick-up on Saturday, May 26, 2018 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority, in Port Hope.


You can help the GRCA meet their goal by sharing this fundraiser with your family, friends and others.
