Visit Snug Harbor to pick up your FREE rain barrel, courtesy of the NYC Department of Environmental Protection. The DEP is giving away 100 brand new rain barrels by the red barn on the southeast corner of campus near the Heritage Farm–first come, first served.
DEP’s Rain Barrel Giveaway Program is part of New York City’s Green Infrastructure Plan that aims to capture stormwater before it can ever enter the sewer system and thereby reduce combined sewer overflows into local waterways. DEP has committed to invest $2.4 billion in green infrastructure projects as well as other source controls, such as rain barrels, to significantly reduce combined sewer overflows by 2030.
