The Comox Valley Regional District(CVRD) is ending their rain barrel rebate program for Comox Valley and Black Creek, starting Dec. 31, 2011.
Senior Manager of Engineering Services Marc Rutten explained the CVRD will be exploring other water conservation methods in the New Year.
“Although we’ve had some success and take up in rain barrels, we wanted to broaden the water efficiency program out a little bit. We are looking at a potential move to other products, like sprinkler systems or landscaping, to possibly help reduce outdoor water consumption, and not just focus on rain barrels”
The rebate program started in 2010 as part of the water efficiency strategy to encourage residents to reduce their water consumption inside and outside their home.
