Green Streets for Blue Waters - Task 2
Mission Lane Raingardens
This rain garden, installed on a non-curbed street, was planted with a variety of plants that bloom throughout the growing season and have the ability to tolerate extreme wet and dry conditions.
Although only one raingarden ended up being constructed on this street, it captures over 55,000 gallons of runoff, 90 pounds of solids, and 0.2 pounds of phosphorus on an annual basis that would otherwise flow into the Minnesota River.
