Take Action! Buy a Rain Barrel to Protect the Ottawa River!

To mark World Water Day, Ottawa Riverkeeper is now accepting pre-sale orders as part of their truckload Rain Barrel sale. Rain barrels start at $55 each and orders must be placed in advance of the sale, either online at or by calling 613-321-1120.

The sale is a natural extension of Ottawa Riverkeeper’s work to protect the Ottawa River, including reducing urban runoff (such as storm water and raw sewage) that is often discharged from the City of Ottawa’s combined sewer system. As an independent voice for the river, Ottawa Riverkeeper provides leadership and inspiration to protect, promote, and improve its ecological health and future. Funds raised will support the upcoming Stormwater Education Campaign in both Ottawa and Gatineau.

“This is a really easy first step homeowners can take to reduce the impacts of stormwater on our river,” says Ottawa Riverkeeper and Executive Director Meredith Brown. “I challenge you to take this one small action to help make swimmable, drinkable, fishable water a reality because we all drink water from the Ottawa River.”
