Rain Barrels
Rain BarrelRebate
The City of River Falls in conjunction with River Falls Municipal Utility are offering a rebate of up to $30 for city residents who install a rain barrel. A rain barrel collects and stores rain water from your rooftop which you can later use to water your lawn or garden, or to wash your car. Using a rain barrel is a great first step to healthier rivers and lakes. This rebate is available for city residents only.

Find out how much water falls on your roof here:  Rainfall Calculator

If you have recently purchased a rain barrel, please download the Rain Barrel Rebate Form for additional information on how to obtain your rebate.

Rain Barrel Installation
Rain barrels come in different sizes as well as a variety of colors to match just about any home. Most barrels have screened lids to keep mosquitoes, leaves and debris out. The barrels are designed with an overflow feature to keep water away from the foundation of your home. Barrels may need to be elevated to allow water flow to gardens and/or your lawn. They are very easy to install.

Read the Rain Barrels Homeowners Manual for additional information.

Sustain Hudson Rain Barrel Program

The City cooperates with Sustain Hudson to make low cost rain barrels available to City residents and the barrels can be purchased right at City Hall. 

There are two types of barrels available at City Hall: blue barrels ($35) and barrels that have been primed white for painting ($50).  If eligibility requirements are met, an instant rebate of 50% of the purchase price will be applied to the first barrel purchased.
