With spring showers approaching, a local environmental organization wants to teach residents how conserve the water.
eMERGE is inviting residents to register for an online event called Rain Water Harvesting: From summer rain barrels to 4 season system.
The online event takes place on Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m. To register, click here.
A release from eMERGE says participants will learn how they can buy a rain barrel from the City of Guelph and access rebates up to $2,000 for whole home rain water harvesting systems.
While a daunting topic, the release said the reduction in your monthly water consumption and benefits to the environment can be well worth it.
The event will also discuss how residents can get a rebate for providing proof of reduced water consumption to the City of Guelph program, Blue Built Home.
This is a pay-what-you-can event. Tickets for this event are $5, but residents can also make a donation instead.
