RainWisePartner-300x167Saturday, May 31st — All are welcome to attend this free event and hear about the community benefits of installing rain gardens and cisterns in Ballard. Attendees will have a chance to learn about the ways in which rain gardens and cisterns help protect the Puget Sound from toxic storm water run-off. Local homeowners who have claimed their rebate and RainWise-trained contractors will also be on hand to answer any questions.

Rain that falls around our homes rushes quickly to the closest drain or stream and during big storms this excess rainfall can cause sewer backups, pollution and erosion to our streams. The City of Seattle is promoting the rebate program so that locals can do their part in reducing flooding, protecting property and restoring the local waters both for people and wildlife.

St. Paul’s United Church of Christ is located at 6512 – 12th Avenue NW, enter from NW 65th; parking available in the lot.
