Protecting our water starts with me and you.
A healthy lawn can improve water quality by filtering, purifying and reducing stormwater runoff
Your stormwater may become someone’s drinking water, or possibly your own. Reducing the quantity and improving the quality of stormwater runoff can begin at your home.
Rain gardens are designed to allow stormwater running off hard surfaces to infiltrate into the soil. There are many benefits and a few patterns to observe in their construction.
