Rainwater barrels

Use a rain barrel!

Have you ever thought of watering your grounds and flower beds without wasting drinking water?
There is an easy way: use a rain barrel!

Everybody agrees that drinking water is a precious resource. Moreover in the summer, when 75% of the municipal drinking water produced is used to water lawns and landscaping.

A rain barrel is a simple and efficient way of optimizing the use of water!

Refund for the purchase or the construction of rain barrels

Residents may be eligible for a refund of up to $50 of the purchase or the construction of a rain barrel. This programme allows residents to choose the model that they like best, at a time convenient for them and in a store of their own choosing.

This program is also intended for eligible establishments such as public or private daycare centres and schools located on the Saint-Lazare territory.
