****Program is closed for 2024, no further orders will be accepted***Sudbury  is among the many towns offering discounted rain barrels to their residents. The Town  encourages the use of rain barrels as part of a  water conservation program. Rainwater can be used for watering gardens, lawns, washing cars, and many other non-potable purposes. Rainwater is not chlorinated, so it is great for plants and lawns. Whether you get your water from  municipal  water supply or  private well, using rainwater reduces  water demand. Collected rain water helps during times of drought and aids in controlling runoff during heavy rains.  This is especially valuable in times of drought. When rain arrives in torrents, diverting some into rain barrels helps  to slow runoff and limits erosion.

Sudbury is partnering  with the Great American Rain Barrel Company to offer Sudbury residents this rain barrel opportunity!
