Water Conservation

Rain-barrels are a great way to collect rain water which you can then use to water your garden.

Usually, Éco-quartier NDG has rain-barrels available for $65, instead of the regular 100$ in most stores. Unfortunately, there are no rain-barrels available at the Éco-quartier NDG for the moment.

More water captured in rain barrels means less water streaming over roads and ending up in sewers. The water collected can be used to water gardens and flowerbeds, thus reducing the amount of water needed from the tap. Plants seem to favour rain-water over tap-water since it doesn’t have the chlorine that tap-water does.
