Get RainWise May 13

Rain falling on our roofs, driveways, or compacted soil rushes off quickly to the nearest drain or stream. In big storms, this excess “storm water” can cause sewer backups, or pollute and erode our streams. We can all help reduce runoff and pollution with simple RainWise practices.

What: Sustainable Seattle, Seattle Public Utilities and Seattle Neighborhood Greenways are hosting an information session/open house about rain gardens.

When: May 13 at 6:30pm, Doors open at 6pm
