Aquabarrel, LLC recently unveiled a new product: The EarthMinded ™ RainStation ™ 60 Gallon Complete Rain Barrel. The RainStation was designed with Prince George's County's Stormwater Management Retrofit Program in mind.
By creating the Stormwater Management Retrofit Program, the PG County Council aims to foster greener communities by offering incentives for homeowners and businesses to reduce rainwater runoff. According to County Councilwoman Mary A. Lehman,"[The program] will make green infrastructure projects affordable to communities that otherwise would not be able to implement them." With the purchase of a pair of EarthMinded ™ RainStation ™ 60 Gallon Rain Barrels, property owners can claim a $50 rebate. Additional rebates are made available with the implementation of various cisterns, rain gardens, and green roofs, among others.
Aquabarrel, LLC (aquabarrel.com) is a microbusiness whose mission is to promote water conservation through the use of rain barrels. Today, Aquabarrel continues to drive the "green" revolution by offering an array of rain barrel products and accessories directly to consumers, including above ground cisterns, downspout diverters and filters, and the rain barrel itself. Additionally, Aquabarrel is always interested in partnering with municipalities and organizations in order to foster better water management at large.
