“In many communities, when it storms heavily, the rainwater combines with the sewage and overwhelms the system – causing sewers to overflow into nearby streams and lakes.
Help stop these combined sewer overflows from occurring in your community. Learn how to install a rain garden and capture that storm water for absorption into the ground. By slowing it down and spreading it out, storm water can become a real asset to trees and wildlife in your neighborhood and your garden.”
