RAIN GARDEN

REHOBOTH BEACH GOES GREEN!  In May of 2012, as part of its “Beach Blooms” initiative, the City of Rehoboth Beach, in partnership with Envirotech, Inc. installed its first demonstration rain garden in support of the Center for Inland Bays “1000 Rain Gardens for the Bays” project to show citizens that functional can be pretty and that anyone can play a part in protecting our inland bays, lakes and
streams.

All agree that rainwater is good, but as it runs off roofs, sidewalks and parking lots, it collects oil, rAINgARDENgrease and other pollutants and carries them directly into our water bodies.  A rain garden is a “garden with a mission” and by its design and use of native plantings, it can filter those impurities from the stormwater before it enters the storm drain and
ultimately into our lakes, streams and bays. Please stop by City Hall at 229 Rehoboth Avenue to see the finished product and pick up a “how to” brochure.  For more information, contact City Commissioner Lorraine Zellers at 302-227-6181.
