GLRPPR Sector Resource: Soak Up the Rain: Taking Action to Protect New England Waters One Yard at a Time

Title:
Soak Up the Rain: Taking Action to Protect New England Waters One Yard at a Time

Abstract:
Join your neighbors around New England who are taking action to soak up the rain. They're planting trees, rain gardens and green roofs; disconnecting and redirecting their downspouts; using rain barrels and drywells; and replacing their driveways and parking lots with permeable pavement. They're helping to soak up the rain and reduce the polluted runoff that flows to our streams, lakes, rivers and coastlines.
