Rain garden

The rain garden at the front of Local Government House is the final portion of our storm water management system.  The garden is a basin of dirt, rocks and gravel that will hold and absorb run-off from the roof and from the pervious pavers on the driveway and walkways. The rain garden also accepts discharge from the building sump that gathers storm water from the perimeter drains. The garden allows water to naturally disperse into the surrounding groundwater and ensures that storm water will only enter the municipal storm drain when there is more rain than the roof, cisterns and garden can handle – and after it has been naturally filtered.
