Slow Stormwater Starting at Home

During storms, rain falling on our roofs and driveways can produce “storm water” runoff.

This excess water can contribute to sewer backups, flooding, and pollution and erosion of our waterways. We can all help solve this problem by following RainWise practices.

To learn more about Seattle’s rebate program for installing cisterns and rain gardens at your home, see RainWise Rebates. As of November 7, homes in some new areas are now eligible for rebates. You can verify your eligibility by visiting RainWise Tools.
