The Richland County Stormwater Management Division and the City of Columbia water department are offering discounted rain barrels for sale to the public.

The 50-gallon barrels, which normally sell for $129, are available for $68, according to a Richland County news release. The gravity-fed barrels, made of 100% recycled materials, don’t require a pump and include a valve for connecting a standard water hose. They also feature a mosquito-resistant inlet and a child-proof lid.

Rain barrels capture and store rain from gutter systems, providing a free source of water for landscaping and gardening while reducing runoff pollution in nearby rivers and streams.

Orders may be placed at Orders must be placed by July 22, and rain barrel pickup is scheduled for July 28 at the city of Columbia Public Works building at 2910 Colonial Drive.
