Event Description

Reduce runoff on your property and protect water quality! Learn how to properly locate, design, construct and maintain a small-scale rain garden— a landscaped area that is designed to capture rain water and allow it to soak into the ground. Rain gardens allow polluted runoff from roads and buildings to infiltrate into the ground, slowing its flow and preventing pollutants from reaching local streams and the Potomac River, a drinking water supply for the region.
