Rain Garden Fact Sheet
A rain garden is a landscaped, shallow depression that allows rain and snowmelt to be collected and seep naturally into the ground. This helps recharge our groundwater supply and prevents a water quality problem called polluted runoff (nonpoint source pollution). Rain gardens are an important way to make our cities and neighbor- hoods more attractive places to live while enhancing ecological health. (2006)
