Following discussion and recommendations from residents on the Community Stormwater Management Committee, the Village has approved a pilot program that will offer rainwater barrel sales at a 50% discount off regular prices. Following are the details of the program:

* Available to all Westmont residents & businesses
* $35 per water barrel (typical retail price around $70)
* Limit of no more than 2 water barrels at the discounted price per Westmont address
* Water barrels must be installed and used within the Village of Westmont
* To further promote the benefits of rainwater barrels, residents asked to take pictures of installed barrels and send to the Village (
* This program will be in effect from Monday, September 9, 2013 to Friday, November 22, 2013 (rainwater barrels will be sold at their usual price once the program is over)

Once the order and payment is received, orders will typically be delivered within a week. Order forms can also be picked up at the Clerk’s Office, Village Hall, 31 W. Quincy Street. For more information about purchasing a rainwater barrel, please contact Mike Ramsey at or 630-981-6289.

“Our new Stormwater Management Committee has met several times in the last few months and I’m very happy with the progress we’ve made thus far,” says Committee Chair Steve Nero. “We’re approaching this process comprehensively, so there will be large-scale community project recommendations as well as smaller projects that individual homeowners can take initiative and accomplish on their own. Our new rainwater barrel program is an example of this.”


“To further promote the program and the benefits of rainwater barrels, the Village will be giving one free rainwater barrel to each of the local schools within the Village of Westmont,” says Stormwater Committee Project Manager Larry McIntyre. “Additionally, we will be offering to come out to the schools to provide informational and educational presentations regarding rainwater barrels and water conservation.”

The Westmont Stormwater Management Committee will continue to meet regularly to review and discuss the community’s needs and make recommendations regarding stormwater projects and how the Village will fund these initiatives. The committee is planning to make an initial presentation to the Village Board in October.

For more information regarding the Community Stormwater Management Committee, please contact Project Manager Larry McIntyre at or 630-417-0280.
