UPDATE: Not to be outdone, Gatineau has a rain barrel rebate program too!

Did you know?  The City of Ottawa offers a $50 rebate for all residents who purchase a rain barrel.  It’s not just for the waterban folks in Barrhaven, Manotick and Riverside South.  Some conditions apply, here’s the info and application form.  I applied for mine yesterday.

If you are planning to buy a rain barrel, you should check out the community sales listed at RainBarrel.ca.  Several community groups are selling rain barrels through this site as a fundraiser.

    You have good info. Drove into the area and saw the shocking &#39;water ban&#39; signs. Very scary.<br />If you&#39;ve ever seen an overhead satellite shot of BBQhaven, though, the number of outdoor pools is shocking!<br /><br />We live in the middle of a wetland, run water from the well. No water shortage here!
