Rain barrels can be attached to downspouts to capture runoff from the roof for later use, thus saving money and water and decreasing the volume of storm runoff.

This and other events are co-sponsored by the Northern Virginia Rain Barrel Program partner organizations and agencies, which include Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment, Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District, Fairfax County, the City of Falls Church, the City of Alexandria, the Reston Association, and Fairfax County Park Authority.
