McDONOUGH — The Henry County Stormwater Department is hosting its Make-and-Take Rain Barrel Workshops on May 27 and June 10, each from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Stormwater Management Office in McDonough.
The workshops focus on rainwater harvesting, managing stormwater at its source and using it for outdoor chores like car washing, and watering plants, flower gardens, lawns, shrubs, trees and other landscaping.
This event is $10, but participation per workshop is limited to eight people (four per workshop) who sign up. There will be one barrel per participant and one barrel per household. Those who participate must reside in the county and driver’s licenses/state ID will be used to verify county residency and household. Minors need to be accompanied by an adult. Registrants who have previously participated in past workshops are asked not to register for this event.
The Henry County Stormwater Management Office is located at 347 Phillips Drive in McDonough.
