Rain Barrel Program

League City promotes the rain barrel program for water-wise conservation. The barrels are 50-gallon capacity, mosquito resistant, locking child-proof lid, and include an overflow hose attachment. They are used for harvesting rain water, which helps protect rivers and streams from runoff pollution. They also help supplement the water supply by using rainwater to irrigate gardens and landscapes.
