Rain Barrel Program promotes water conservation

Updated:

The Rain Barrel Program is a collaborative effort between Lafayette Utilities System and Public Works to promote outdoor water conservation and improve water quality of the Bayou Vermilion Watershed. We initiated the program in the spring of 2013 after a successful pilot program was conducted in 2012. The goal of the program is to give customers an easy to use approach of reducing tap water usage during the spring and summer months for watering lawns and gardens, which typically results  in an increase of 30% on a customer's water bill. It also reduces the amount of storm water runoff from entering the Bayou Vermilion.

The rain barrels will be offered for purchase for the wholesale price of $54 to all Lafayette Parish residents until April 25, 2014. Eligible LUS residential water customers living in the City of Lafayette are able to receive a reduced price of $35. This price is only available to the first 450 eligible customers. The rain barrels will be available for pick up on May 3, 2014 at the Public Works Building at 1515 E. University between 8 am – 12 pm.

Customers are encouraged to visit our website at www.lus.org/rainbarrel or call our customer service center at 291-8280 for more information.
