What Can I Do To Help The Environment?
Prevent Water Pollution
Rain gardens are one of many ways people can control storm water runoff before it becomes a problem. A rain garden is a depression that is planted with vegetation that captures storm water from impervious surfaces before it reaches storm drains. Rain gardens allow the storm water to soak back into the ground.
Rain Garden Pamphlet:
A rain barrel is a container attached to the down-spout of your home. It will collect any storm water that melts or falls onto your home instead of flowing down the storm drain which can lead to problems for our water supply. A gardening hose can be attached to make use of the water collected for your own lawn or garden.
