When it rains, it pours…but you’ll be ready
When it rains, water can’t soak into surfaces like driveways and roads – instead it runs off into streets and storm sewers, and takes with it a number of pollutants like oils, fertilizers, salt, dirt and garbage. Minor landscaping changes on your property can drastically help manage stormwater. Not only can you reduce the potential of flooding on your property, you can also harvest rainwater for your gardens. Reducing runoff can help minimize the impact on lakes and streams, and help encourage rainwater to soak into the ground to recharge our groundwater aquifers.
