Rain Gardens to the Rescue: Using plants and natural systems to manage stormwater

Polluted runoff is one of the greatest threats to clean water in the U.S. As we develop our cities and towns, we replace forests and meadows with buildings and pavement. When it rains, the water runs off roofs and driveways into the street. Runoff picks up fertilizer, oil, pesticides, dirt, bacteria and other pollutants as it makes its way through storm drains and ditches – untreated – to our streams, rivers, lakes and the ocean. Rain gardens provide a cost-effective, attractive and environmentally sound solution to managing residential and urban storm water runoff.
