2015 Rainwater Revival
Water is scarce in the Texas Hill Country. With our drought-and-flood climate and stressed water supply, alternatives to traditional water project development can help increase reliability, conserve resources and protect the environment. An effective, desirable and responsible alternative is rainwater harvesting.
Now in its 6th year, the Rainwater Revival brings together homeowners, builders, vendors and conservation experts to connect, share and celebrate the ancient tradition of harvesting rainwater.
Join us November 7, 2015 from 10 am to 4 pm in Dripping Springs for a full day of fun, education and celebration! Open to the public and free to attend thanks to our wonderful sponsors.
The festive day will be filled with informative and entertaining presentations by professionals and users of rainwater, water conservation-related business vendor booths, rainwater system displays, and plenty of experts to provide guidance and services.
The Rainwater Revival will feature a collection of 55-gallon recycled rain barrels transformed into works of art by Hill Country artists. The barrels will be displayed around the Hill Country during the weeks leading up to the Rainwater Revival and then auctioned off at the event. Proceeds from the auction fund grants awarded to Hill Country Schools for use toward the installation of rainwater collection and water conservation education.
Enjoy shopping, delicious local food, live music, the Raindrop Stop for kids, and much more!
