Residents of some Paso Robles neighborhoods can apply for one-time rebates of up to $75 for using rain barrels at their homes or businesses.
The barrels, which residents have to purchase and install, would collect rainwater for conservation and prevent storm water run-off. Residents who live adjacent to Centennial Creek on the city’s east side are eligible to apply.
The Upper Salinas-Las Tablas Resource Conservation District is offering the rebates through a project funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, in partnership with PG&E.
The conservation district works to help educate landowners about their natural resources, according to its website, http://us-ltrcd.org.
