Rain Barrel Workshop This Weekend

| March 31, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Eastport Civic Association (ECA) will hold a workshop on installing rain barrels this Saturday, April 2, 2011 from10:00 -11:00 a.m. at the Eastport Volunteer Fire Department located at 914 Bay Ridge Ave.  The workshop is part of the ECA’s Eastport EcoAction! mission to initiate, educate and complete environmental projects that benefit Eastport and also to partner with and support other organizations with similar goals.

“Rain barrels help protect the environment by collecting and storing rain water from your roof that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, streams and ultimately, the Chesapeake Bay”, says, ECA president Vic Pascoe. “As part of our EcoAction! mission, we want to help residential and commercial property owners address stormwater on their property and to show just how easy it is to make a difference. This rain barrel installation at the Eastport VFD is a perfect way to do so, in a public setting for all to see”.

Rain barrels are easy to install and are reasonably priced. For more information go to http://www.eastportcivic.org
