Rebecca Mellentin of the Waite Park neighborhood invites you to come see the intense stormwater reduction project she is installing in her yard. After years of dealing with water in her basement and hillside erosion in her yard she is taking on this project with the help of a plan from Metro Blooms.
The project is currently under construction and you are welcome to come by and see it. The plan includes roof drains, a creek bed, and raingardens of native plants that will be certified wildlife habitat. Drop by at 3232 Pierce ST NE for a look.
Interested in more stormwater management ideas? The Waite Park neighborhood will have a panel discussion at their first meeting of the new year on Wednesday January 7th 2015.
