EVERETT – The City of Everett will relaunch its popular rain barrel program with sales on Saturday, April 21, and Saturday, May 5. To purchase a ready-made barrel, visit the Everett Public Works Building at 3200 Cedar Street, from 9 a.m. to noon. The price is $55 and cash or check are accepted.

“Rain barrels continue to be extremely popular,” said Apryl Hynes, Everett public education specialist. “They are a simple and easy way to manage stormwater runoff and a great way to help meet summer watering needs.”

If you would like to build your own barrel, attend a “Make it, Take it” workshop on Tuesday, April 24, at 6 p.m., or Saturday, May 12, at 10 a.m. The price is $40, which includes the barrel and all necessary parts. Please RSVP for the workshop at 425-257-8992.
