    I know that my brother got one form the city when he installed his meter but that was a pilot program. I also know that these have been growing in popularity for some time and that even the rebate programs are drying up. It seems the most economical way to get one is build it yourself or you can purchase one from a cost of $20 to $125 for the typical 55 gallon variety. I looked on Craigs list and found these which are pretty reasonable and in that range.https://chicago.craigslist.org/search/grd?query=rain+barrel - actually, I am thinking of getting one myself.

  • Hey, I wish to say thanks This will soon be my next project and the information you've given is a great start
    I'll provide updates during the process.
    Thanks
