RAINY DAY STORY…
or what canhappen when it rains.I you live in Nashville, much othe land around you has beencovered with roads, parking lotsand buildings. Rain water that alls onto thesehard suraces becomes runo that ows acrosspaved areas warming and collecting contaminants,such as oil, pesticides and pet waste, along itsway. This warm polluted water ows into stormwater sewer systems eventually entering streams.Even worse, in some older areas o the city withcombined storm water and sewage pipes, runocan combine with raw sewage during heavy rains.I the volume o this combined sewage is too greatit can overow untreated into our rivers. All thisruno puts a heavy burden on our streams andleads to ooding, erosion and habitat loss. Thiscosts our city extra money in water treatmentand repairs.

A GOOD CLEAN STORY…
or what we can doto help.Rain Gardens are a natural and beautiulway to reduce and clean storm water. They areshallow, depressed gardens designed to collect rainwater and allow it time to flter into the ground.This results in cleaner water, less water enteringour storm systems and more water reflling theunderground water table that keeps small streamsowing during the dry summer months.Rain Gardens are lovely, lively, colorul, lowmaintenance habitats or insects and animals. Theirnative plants provide ood to song birdsand butteries.
