Brooklyn Neighborhood Rain Gardens

The Tabor to the River project uses green infrastructure to manage both public and private stormwater runoff at the source.

The City recently partnered with 4 residential properties in the Brooklyn neighborhood to manage stormwater from a total of 3,500 ft2 of roof area. These four rain gardens reduce stormwater flows entering the local sewer by an average of 77,000 gallons of runoff annually.
