Rain Check is a Philadelphia Water program that helps residents manage stormwater at their homes. Participants can get a free rain barrel and/or get a downspout planter, rain garden or porous paving installed at a reduced price. Rain Check supports Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters program which is working in neighborhoods across the City, adding green features to keep excess stormwater out of sewers.

The program is funded by Philadelphia Water and managed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) in partnership with the Sustainable Business Network (SBN).

Terraquarbor is proud to be an official contractor for this program!   We currently install Rain Barrels, Downspout Planters and Rain Gardens for the Rain Check program.

If you are a Philadelphia resident, you can learn more and apply for stormwater tools at a workshop near you.  Follow this link to sign up!
