The El Paso County Conservation District agrees that the lawful collection and use of rainwater using rain barrels is a great way to water residential lawns, gardens, and landscapes. While we are not currently selling rain barrels, parts, or DIY kits, we do have a lot of experience and information to share about rain barrels and our mission to support the conservation of natural resources to ensure health, safety, and general welfare of our community.
