You're Invited: RainScaping at Home! Workshops to Offset Impacts of Storm Water

RAIN informs us that stormwater runoff impacts water quality and quantity by:

  • “transporting pollution directly into lakes and rivers;
  • eroding shorelines, loss of topsoil that hastens further runoff;
  • warming up surface water, making it more susceptible to waterborne bacteria and hazardous to fragile marine life;
  • overflowing sewage treatment facilities, allowing untreated human waste to flow directly into surface water; and
  • robbing groundwater aquifers of adequate recharge capacity”

RAIN’s solutions to the above problems include allowing “more rain to soak into the ground by installing rain gardens and increasing permeable areas.”
