The city is trying to meet federal and state clean water requirements, and believes rain gardens offer a good alternative to traditional methods of water management. As it turns out, that’s not all they do.</p> Fri, 06 Sep 2013 11:20:00 +0000 Guy Stephens 35696 at http://northernpublicradio.org City's Rain Gardens Save Environment, And More
