About Rain Check

Rain Check is a Philadelphia Water Department 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 the Philadelphia Water Department and managed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) in partnership with the Sustainable Business Network (SBN).
