While we’ve had some rainy days lately to make up for our rain deficit, there’s no telling what summer will be like. We had a record mild winter and almost no snow. We could have a scorching hot summer with little rain. Or not.

The Conservation Commission has lined up a deal with The RI Water Lady to offer you a deal on a top-quality rain barrel and the fitting that makes it easy to hook-up to your downspout. For $100, you can get the barrel and the fitting ($75 for the barrel alone).
