Rain Barrel Grant Program


As part of Newark’s Stormwater Utility, residents in the City can apply to receive a free rain barrel, while supplies last. Rain barrels capture water from the roof so it can be reused for watering plants or washing cars, which can save on your water bill, especially during droughts. They also help prevent stormwater pollution by diverting water that would otherwise run along streets, picking up pollutants along the way, and flowing into our local creeks.

If interested in receiving a rain barrel, please contact Kelley Dinsmore at or 302-366-7000 to request an application.
