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.
