Collecting rainwater and storing it in a rain barrel can help offset drinking water used for outdoor purposes. Using rainwater helps reduce the amount of pollution which flows into nearby storm drains, sewers and waterways and then eventually into the ocean. Rain barrels also contribute in making sure that local water supplies are being used more efficiently.
West Basin is committed to reducing the region’s reliance on imported water supplies. The District encourages customers to utilize local water sources such as rainwater, whenever possible.
From 8 to 11 am on Jan. 18, 2020, you can get a rain barrel at the Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility at 1935 S. Hughes Way in El Segundo, 90245.
