Dauphin Communities in Bloom will soon save thousands of dollars by collecting rain.

Alison Moss says Communities in Bloom will use what's collected to water plants around town.

“We’re planning to capture rainwater off the south side of the Rotary Arena. So we will have three raised stands along the south side of the arena. So the runoff will come through the gutters, and then there will be tanks to catch the water.”

She continues, “It will be a totally green project, in that it’s gravity fed. So we don’t even have to rely on a pump to get the water from the tanks and into our Communities in Bloom truck.”

 Their best estimate is around 3 thousand dollars a year will be saved depending on how much we get.
