Rain barrels available for residents
SPICER -- The Middle Fork Crow River Watershed District has rain barrels available for qualifying residents.
The Rain Barrel Program helps keep storm runoff from entering waterways and carrying pollutants with it.
Pickup day will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 25 in the Green Lake Mall parking lot. People should call the watershed district in advance at 320-796-0888 to reserve a barrel as there are limited numbers available.
A qualifying resident will be within the first tier on a water body within the district or in city limits of Spicer, New London, Belgrade, or Atwater with curb and gutter runoff drainage.
For these qualifying residents, the watershed district will cover 75 percent of the cost, leaving only $25 for a 59-gallon oak rain barrel.
Non-qualifying residents can receive a barrel at full price.
