Create a Raingarden
Raingardens serve as water filters, collecting polluted stormwater before it reaches our lakes and streams. Stormwater runoff washes leaves, grass clippings, fertilizers, and pesticides from streets and rooftops into storm sewers, contaminating nearby lakes and rivers. Watch the video below to learn about how a raingarden works.
