Thanks to a reader for passing on from DDOE:

“I’m writing to update you on your rain barrel installation. As of May 1, DDOE’s non-profit partner DC Greenworks unexpectedly closed and therefore is no longer installing rain barrels for the RiverSmart Homes program. We do not have an estimated date for your rain barrel installation, but you are at the top of our priority list. As soon as we have secured partners to provide installation services, we will be in touch with next steps.

In the meantime, we sincerely appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to resolve this issue.”
