Rain gardens sprouting all over Seattle
The typical single-family home sheds about 50,000 gallons of stormwater runoff each year. Channeling that runoff to a rain garden or cistern can help to prevent sewage overflows and protect local waterways from polluted runoff.
RainWise provides rebates to customers based on how much of that runoff is diverted to a rain garden or cistern. The typical rebate covers most of the installation cost.
