Distribution of reserved rainwater harvesting barrels on July

As announced in its June 14th newsletter, the Town of Sutton has set up a program to subsidize and distribute rainwater harvesting barrels to its residents. The first fifty barrels have all been reserved, and those who have received confirmation will be able to pick them up on July 15, between 12 and 4 p.m., in the Town Hall parking lot.

As part of its rainwater harvesting barrel subsidy and distribution program, the Town of Sutton is offering 220-litre barrels, valued at $115, at a cost of $50 for Sutton residents. In this first phase, the 50 barrels reserved will be distributed on Saturday, July 15, and a representative of the company that manufactures the barrels, Les Bariteux, will be on hand to hand over the barrel and explain its operation and maintenance.


Saturday, July 15, Town Hall parking lot, 12 noon to 4 p.m

Payment of $50 will be required in cash only and in the exact amount at the time of barrel delivery. Proof of residence must be presented on site.

Sutton residents who were unable to reserve a barrel this time around can still send an e-mail to [email protected] to express their interest and be put on a waiting list for next year’s distribution, or if a reserved barrel becomes available this year.

By subsidizing part of the cost of the barrels, the Town of Sutton wishes to encourage the population to save drinking water from its aqueduct and private wells on its territory.
