The Land and Water Management received a grant from the Fund for Lake Michigan to assist landowners in the Milwaukee River Watershed to install rain gardens. This simple practice helps excess stormwater infiltrate into the ground, instead of collecting excess chemicals and nutrients and getting into local streams and rivers which ultimately drain into Lake Michigan. A shallow depression is created near a downspout or other impervious area and planted with deep rooted native vegetation. To learn more about this exciting urban practice please proceed to the Rain Garden Brochure.
