• Town of Brownsburg offers water customers a chance to win a rain barrel

    February 27, 2013 No comments

    The Town of Brownsburg is offering its water customers a way to save money and do something good for the environment while watering their lawns and gardens. From March 1 through June, every Brownsburg utility customer who signs up for e-billing or auto payments on their water bills will be entered for a chance to win a rain barrel.

    Because watering the lawn and garden accounts for nearly 40 percent of total household water use in summer, more and more homeowners are using rain barrels. A rain barrel is placed below a downspout to collect and store rainwater from a home’s roof that would otherwise run off into storm drains and streams. Just a small amount of rain — less than half an inch — can easily fill a 50-gallon rain barrel. Homeowners can save about 1,300 gallons of water in peak warm weather months using rainwater.

    Customers who choose e-billing elect to no longer receive paper bills through the mail, but enjoy the convenience of getting their monthly Brownsburg utility bill via email. Customers who sign up for ACH automatic payments can skip the trip to Town Hall or the post office by having their water payment automatically deducted from their checking account each month. Customers can sign up for either or both electronic services on the Town’s website, www.brownsburg.org, or at the Utility Department on the first floor of Town Hall, 61 N. Green Street. Call 852-1102 with questions.

    The Town of Brownsburg’s rain barrels are available thanks to a Community Grant from the Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District. One drawing will be conducted each month, March through June.
