Hydration Station

A water bottle filling station, the Hydration Station was built by the City of Carmel Water Operations department. It promotes the safety of staying hydrated during the summer, as well as decreasing the use of plastic water bottles. All materials were generously donated by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting, Carmel Countertops and Eastern Engineering.

The Hydration Station was recently featured at Art of Wine, Brews on the Boulevard and Oktoberfest, as well as previous Carmel events including: International Arts Festival, Late Night on Main and the Summer Family Concert Series at the Gazebo.

Holiday Lights Recycling Drive

Carmel Clay Schools Green Teams, City of Carmel Utilities, City of Carmel, Technology Recyclers and White’s Ace Hardware work together to make it a green holiday season by offering a Holiday Lights Recycling Drive.

From mid-November until mid-January, residents can recycle used and unwanted holiday lights at White’s Ace Hardware at 731 South Range Line Road.

Since the start of the collaborative program in 2011, more than seventeen tons of holiday lights have been recycled. The 2023-2024 drive collected more than 7,000 pounds!

Rain on Main

Rain on Main, a painted rain barrel contest presented by Carmel Utilities, Carmel Department of Storm Water Management and the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District, is held annually to increase awareness of water quality and efficiency in Carmel and to raise funds for water education signage in Carmel Clay Parks.

Rain Barrels continue to grow in popularity across the country; beautifully painted rain barrels increase their desirability and encourage water conservation by using recycled rainwater. Rain barrels sit under gutter downspouts to collect and store rainwater from roofs that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, streams and rivers. The collected water can then be used to water plants in the landscape instead of using treated water which saves water and energy.
