Green Streets for Blue Waters - Task 3
107th St. Circle Raingardens
This rain garden 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 185,000 gallons of runoff, 300 pounds of solids, and nearly 1 pound of phosphorus on an annual basis that would otherwise flow into the Minnesota River.
