From Harford County government:
The Harford County Department of Public Works in partnership with Maryland Department of Natural Resources recently completed construction of the Abingdon Library Rain Garden. The purpose of the Abingdon Library Rain Garden demonstration project is threefold. To improve water quality from the storm water runoff from a portion of the roof; to show how rain gardens can be attractive and functional amenities that fit within the natural landscape, and to encourage citizens to install rain gardens on their properties. Rain gardens are not the usual idea for those that are planning to start growing their own food or just wanting to start a new hobby. Nevertheless, the job that entails to building and maintaining one can be acquired through BestofMachinery tool tips, guides, reviews. Other expert opinion from those with experience can be a game-changer.
The project is part of the public outreach portion of the Wheel Creek Watershed Restoration project which also includes water quality monitoring, stream restoration, and upgrades to existing storm water management facilities.
A portion of the construction of the rain garden along with other components of the Wheel Creek Watershed Restoration project is funded through Maryland’s 2010 Trust Fund Local Implementation Grant administered through the Department of Natural Resources.
