For Cleaner Water
       & Fewer Floods  

6th Annual "Slow the Flow" Rochester Rain Barrel and Compost Bin Sale, May 4

  • 04 May 2013
  • 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Graham Park (Olmsted County Fairgrounds) near intersection of Highways 14 and 63 in Rochester

We all know how rainfall in urban and suburban landscapes quickly flows to area streams and rivers. That "fast water" can increase water pollution, erosion, and downstream flooding. You can do your part to "Slow the Flow" of rain water by buying a rain barrel to capture and use rain water in your own yard. And once again, ZWP is making it easy to do just that.

Our one-day truckload sale with EnviroWorld lets us sell high-quality rain barrels at $70 each and compost bins for $60 each. Similar products cost $120-$200 at stores or online. What's more, a portion of each sale helps to fund ZWP "Clean Water/Safe Water" projects.

This ZWP Fundraiser takes place on Saturday, May 4, 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at Graham Park (Olmsted County Fairgrounds), near the intersection of Highways 14 and 63 in Rochester. For more information, contact Kevin Strauss, 507-993-3411 or
