Free Rain Barrel Giveaway in Carroll Park: 7/14/2019
Join Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon for a rain barrel giveaway, co-sponsored with the Friends of Carroll Park, on Sunday, July 14th in Carroll Park (Smith Street between Carroll St. & President St.), from 10am – 2pm. Water collected can be used to water gardens and for other outdoor chores. These 60-gallon barrels capture storm water before it enters the sewer system to help prevent sewage overflows from entering into our local waterways. Barrels can connect directly to your downspout to capture and store rain water. Rain barrels are provided by the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, through the NYC Green Infrastructure Plan. If you’d like to reserve a rain barrel, please email email@example.com or call my office at 718-246-4889.
