Hillsborough County residents/Tampa Water Department customers can score free water when they sign up in advance for a free rain barrel workshop.
The event at 10:30 a.m. March 1 takes place at the UF/IFAS Extension Hillsborough County office, 5339 County Road 579, Seffner.
There is a limit of one free rain barrel per household and space is limited to participate.
Rain barrels are utilized to gather rainwater runoff from roofs for landscaping purposes, thus conserving potable water.
Non-Hillsborough County residents can also participate in a workshop on that same day for a $26 fee.
