How to make your own rain collection barrel
For this weeks Weather Wednesday, StormTRACKER Meteorologist Jesse Ritka teams up with Kim Radebuagh of the River Keepers of Fargo-Moorhead to show us how to make a rain barrel at home.
FARGO — August is typically the driest month of the summer, but our lawns, flowers and vegetables will still need water. To make up for what mother nature can't provide, here's a solution that saves the water that flows down the drainpipe: a rain collection barrel.
The River Keepers works with the Clay Soil & Water Conservation District and Cass County Soil Conservation District to put on rain barrel workshops in the spring.
