Rain Barrel Project ~ Creativity and Conservation

Rain Barrel Project Embraces Creativity and Conservation
Posted on 10/26/2020

An exciting rain barrel project sponsored by the Douglasville-Douglas County Water and Sewer Authority (WSA) and the Cultural Arts Council (CAC) will help students show off their artistic and creative talents and learn about water conservation efforts.

WSA delivered rain barrels to every school in the Douglas County School System earlier this month. The schools have until December to decorate their barrel and submit a picture to the Cultural Arts Council. The Douglas County community will then be able to vote on Facebook for their favorite designs. The two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school that garner the most “Likes” will win a digital weather system provided by WSA. Afterwards, all schools are invited to install their new rain barrel on location to help with their school gardens, STEM programs and curriculum related to water conservation and using resources wisely.
