“A rain barrel collects water whenever it rains (Rain barrels are available at many local hardware and garden stores). You can use the saved water to keep your lawn and garden thriving and control runoff, all in one fell swoop!”

All residents of Blackburn Hamlet are eligible for a custom home assessment delivered by our non-profit partners at EnviroCentre. A limited number of bookings were made available this year and they are all booked. Demand for the home assessment program was very high. Residents can now sign up for the waiting list at envirocentre.ca/rain-ready. You can follow along with Rain Ready Ottawa on social media for ways to help protect your property and our local environment.
