Rain Barrel Distribution Day


Artboard 1


*2021 rain barrel distribution day has closed. Please check back for the next event date*

What is Rain Barrel Distribution Day?

An annual event the Water Quality Program (WQP) offers where City homeowners can purchase rain barrels at a subsidized price.


Am I eligible?

  • If you live within city limits & own your home, you can purchase up to 2 rain barrels at a subsidized price. If you are renting & wish to purchase, you must have the home owner's approval, as installation of a rain barrel requires cutting the gutter downspout
  • If you live outside of Chattanooga City limits, you can still purchase a rain barrel- but at a non-subsidized rate


How does the event work?

  • Rain barrels are purchased online (approval pending based on mailing address)
  • All details of pick up date/time etc. are emailed to the purchaser
  • Rain barrels are picked up on the "distribution day" by the purchaser. Drive up, & the WQP staff will check your receipt & load your purchased rain barrel(s) into your vehicle for you
  • Rain Barrel Distribution Day is funded by the RainSmart program, so rain barrels purchased through the event are not eligible for further reimbursement by RainSmart**
