Downspout Disconnect

By simply redirecting the water from your downspout into a garden, rain barrel, or lawn, you can make a substantial impact for stormwater management by reducing erosion and pollutants carried by the runoff. Direct the water into a garden or a rain barrel for later use to save money on your water bill.
