A temporary discount combined with a limited-time rebate is helping San Diegans save 90 percent on 50 gallon rain barrels through the end of the year.
From now until the end of the year, water-conscious locals can take home rain barrels for just $15.
The SoCalWaterSmart Program rebate, currently at $75, will soon drop to $35, the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) announced.
The SDCWA will sell 50 gallon rain barrels through the Solana Center for $90, down from its normal $149 tag.
Customers can pick up their barrels at any of Solana Center’s four pick-up locations in the county:
