WHAT IS A RAIN GARDEN?
Rain gardens are vegetated areas that collect, absorb and clean stormwater runoff. Using slope, vegetation and well drained soils, rain gardens are increasingly being used by homeowners and municipalities to reduce the impact of stormwater on local waterways and storm drain systems.
MyRWA is working with the Town of Arlington, City of Everett and local community groups to design and build one to two rain gardens in each city. Community involvement is key to the success of these gardens – please plan on attending the next Community Meeting!
