Rain barrels are currently available at the Onslow office of N.C. Cooperative Extension. These roughly 50-gallon food-grade rain barrels come complete with screened inlet, brass faucet, and 1.5-inch overflow outlet.
The cost is $60 for a ready-made, black, unpainted rain barrel. The rain barrel can be easily painted to either stand out or blend in with its surroundings. Call (910) 455-5873 for additional information.
