It’s Time to Get RainWise – Apr 30 Workshop

7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Ballard First Lutheran Church, you can learn more about the RainWise rebate program and the expanded rebate area!  Register here.


Wednesday, April 30th — 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.

Ballard First Lutheran is located at 20th Ave NW & NW 65th Street.  The workshop will be in the church hall behind the beige house at 2006 NW 65th Street.  Parking is available in the lot at NW 65th Street & 21st Avenue NW.
