Rain Barrel Project



Our Partners:

2018 Rain Barrel Art Contest

For the third year, Lafayette Utilities System (LUS) and Lafayette Consolidated Government's (LCG) Environmental Quality Division, in partnership with Bayou Vermilion Preservation Association (BVPA), hosted a rain barrel public art contest with participating Lafayette Parish schools.

The rain barrels were designed and painted with an “eco” theme in mind. 
Students who participated in the 2018 Rain Barrel Art Contest were from Southside, Acadiana, Northside, David Thibodaux STEM, Teurlings, and St. Thomas More High Schools.
The rain barrel art project is an annual collaboration of LUS, LCG’s EQ Division, BVPA, Project Front Yard and Lafayette area schools to beautifully and artistically bring awareness to water conservation and the preservation of the Bayou Vermilion Watershed. The project educates students and the general public on storm water management, while also promoting public art.
