From the website: "All are welcome to attend the free event and learn more about the community benefits of installing rain gardens and cisterns in Ballard and nearby areas. 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. King County and the City of Seattle are 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."
