More than 30 Williston residents learned how to make rain barrels from a workshop held by the town on June 24. Rain barrels collect water from roof gutters and downspouts during rain events, reducing the amount of stormwater runoff leaving a property and entering nearby streams and rivers. Water collected by rain barrel can be used to water flowers, lawns and gardens.

The town plans to hold another rain barrel workshop in the fall.

The town thanked Paquette Full of Posies for donating materials for the workshop, the volunteers who helped prepare the barrels for the participants and Karen Bates for assisting with the workshop.


  1. Louis M. Izzo says:

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
