Albany County Soil & Water District Provides Rain Barrels at Discounted Cost for County Residents
Release Date: April 27, 2010

Don’t forget that the Albany County Soil and Water District will provide New England Rain Barrels to Albany County residents at the price of $75.95. The Soil and Water Conservation District has teamed up with The New England Rain Barrel Company to offer these rain barrels to help residents conserve water, save money and reduce storm water run-off. Non-residents are also able to purchase a rain barrel through this program.
The rain barrels are made from 55 gallon blue plastic recycled containers. The top does not come off, so no children or pets can get in the barrel. It has a six inch diameter inlet opening covered with a screened louver to keep insects and debris out. The barrels have 2 brass spigots; one to allow you to connect a hose for watering, and one for overflow. You can connect a hose to the overflow spigot and redirect the water away from your home. It even comes with a 5 foot hose with a shutoff valve. You can join multiple barrels for additional capacity.
Orders may be placed through May 7, 2010 and the rain barrel pick-up day is Saturday May 15 at the Soil and Water District Office, 24 Martin Road, Voorheesville from 12 noon until 3 p.m. To order a rain barrel and for further information, call The New England Rain Barrel Company at 877-977-3135 or order online at
