Why is the District government offering rebates on rain barrels?

Rooftops comprise a large percentage of the impervious area in Washington, D.C. Rain water that flows off impervious surfaces such as rooftops, driveways, and roads flows over these surfaces to our streams, picking up pollutants on its way. In addition to water conservation, rain barrels help the environment in two ways: by allowing water to seep back into the ground slowly, naturally filtering the water and recharging the water table; and by reducing the amount of water going into our streams and rivers during heavy storms, easing stream erosion.
