Learn about Rebates for Rain Gardens and Cisterns

rain gardenDo you know what a rain garden is? Rain gardens can be thought of as a personal water quality system. A rain garden is a shallow, constructed depression that is planted with deep-rooted native plants and grasses. It is located in your landscape to receive polluted runoff from hard surfaces such as a roof, a sidewalk and a driveway. Rain gardens slow down the rush of water from these hard surfaces, hold the water for a short period of time and allow it to naturally infiltrate into the ground.

Did you know? Seattle and King County are paying up to 100 percent of the cost of these improvements on eligible properties.

Join us at The Galleria at Chief Sealth International High School on Saturday May 4, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to learn more.

At this free event, you will:

  • Find out what you can do on your property
  • Meet trained rain garden and cistern installers
  • See a variety of rainwater cisterns and rain garden designs
