About the Event

Imagine using rain from your rooftop to water your garden or even flush your toilets and wash your clothes.

Learn how you can buy a rain barrel from the City of Guelph and access rebates up to $2,000 for whole home rainwater harvesting systems. This can be your first step to register your home for the Blue Built Home program.

While people usually start with rain barrels for outdoor use, some realize the opportunity is much greater than just a couple of 200 litre containers. What if we stored 1,000 – 2,000 litres or much more, to use year round inside and outside our homes.

The process may seem daunting at first. But, the reduction in your monthly water consumption and benefits to the environment can be well worth it.
