You can play a key role in protecting Oakland's watershed.

Catch the rain with a discounted rain-barrel and be one more household preventing runoff and erosion while saving water for irrigation or other uses.

Purchase a barrel or tank in advance online at a discount of 50-75%. Then come by the Temescal Farmers Market to pick it up.

The Oakland Watershed & Stormwater Management Rain Barrel Program is a three-year initiative to build healthier urban communities by providing reduced cost rain barrels to Oakland residents (As per city grant requirements, purchasers of rain barrels must be Oakland residents) Funding for this project has been provided in full or in part through an agreement with the State Water Resources Control Board.

Rain barrels offer many benefits to homeowners and renters in the City of Oakland. By installing a rain barrel, you can: reduce flooding, runoff and erosion; conserve water; improve landscape aesthetics; and protect infrastructure. Visit the city of Oakland's website to purchase barrels and tanks and for further information:
