Rain Barrel Event 

Colorado is the last state in the U.S. to officially allow the use of rain barrels. New legislation goes into effect on August 10th, which finally makes rain barrels legal in Colorado. 

 To help educate the public about the proper use of rain barrels, the City of Boulder Water Conservation Program is planning a kick-off event. The Boulder Barrel Project will work with local artists and businesses to design and showcase professionally painted rain barrels from August 10 through September 10, culminating with an auction and evening event (tentativelySeptember 17th).

The project and event will be managed through a partnership with Open Studios, with additional support from the Center for ReSource Conservation and Boulder Housing Partners. Collectively, these non-profits support arts, water conservation and low-income housing in the Boulder community. Proceeds will go back to these local non-profits and artists.
