Right as rain
Rain Barrel rebate

Rainwater harvesting systems capture and store rainwater from your rooftop. Capturing this water:

  • reduces stormwater runoff -  protects water quality, minimizes erosion, and reduces flooding.  
  • conserves drinking water - by using rainwater water for non-potable uses such as watering your lawn, landscaping, and even washing your car or dog. 
  • allows water to soak into the ground at a more controlled rate - recharging our groundwater supply. 

Residents of Greene County are eligible to receive this rain barrel rebate - thanks to the funding of City of SpringfieldGreene County Resource Management, and City Utilities

This one-time rebate is issued as a direct reimbursement to homeowners at a rate of $0.50 per gallon, based upon your new system's capacity. For example, a 100-gallon system would yield a $50 rebate after installation. To qualify, rainwater harvesting systems must hold a minimum of 50 gallons. The rebate maximum per property is $300.
