The Countywide Rain Barrel Rebate Extended to June 30, 2021

South San Francisco, CA  January 26, 2021

The recent storm brought about quite a bit of high winds – and dropped some of the precious, and much needed, H2O upon us which either soaked into our ground, or drained out to the bay. South City resident Leonard Eng brought up the wonderful opportunity the rains bring us – Harvest in rain barrels! =

We have shared information on the San Mateo County program ‘Flows to Bay’ and the great rebate they offer to residents after they purchase a rain barrel. It seems timely to re-share this information once again as the County has extended this rebate to June 30, 2021 – Thanks to Leonard!
