Submitted by Pigeon Lake Watershed Association

The Pigeon Lake Watershed Association “rain barrel campaign” is coming up on an important deadline.

The campaign, which promotes “Clean Runoff for a Healthy Lake,” offers excellent rain-catching barrels to help Pigeon Lake. Rain barrels are one of the simplest ways to capture rainwater on your lot that would otherwise contribute to unfiltered runoff entering the lake but the deadline for purchase is coming up this weekend.

Runoff is the largest most manageable contributor of nutrients and other pollutants that enter the lake from our properties. Catch and use the water and direct the overflow to deep-rooted plants.

It’s $70 for a rain barrel includes a spigot, overflow hose and mosquito filter basket. Downspout diverters, flexible downspout pipes and rain barrel stands also available.

You can order a rain barrel online at www . rainbarrel . ca/PLWA by July 23 midnight  to guarantee availability.

Barrels can be picked up between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on  Saturday July 30th at Lakedell Agricultural Complex
