Rain barrel sale Saturday, June 29

James River Basin Partnership is coordinating a special one-day only rain barrel sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday at Bass Pro Shops' parking lot, 1935 E. Campbell.

Barrels with downspout diverter kits will be offered at a discounted rate and the price will also include an instant rebate funded by the City of Springfield, Greene County Resource Management, City Utilities, and James River Basin Partnership.

The 60-gallon rain barrels are available in four colors and each comes with a downspout diverter kit. Diverters make installation and maintenance simpler and allow expansion to a two-barrel system on one downspout.

Single rain barrel systems will be available for the rebated price of $99.99 plus tax. Two-barrel systems for one downspout are available for the rebated price of$164.99. Each system includes all the parts needed and an instruction manual for installation.

Walk-up orders are welcome, but because of the expected demand and limited supply available, participants are encouraged to pre-order online at www.rainreserve.com/ozarks. The event is open to all residents of the Ozarks.

For questions about the event, contact Tiffany Frey, James River Basin Partnership, at 417-836-6183 or tfrey@missouristate.edu.
