CWS School Rain Garden Inventory & Retrofits

Lori Faha and GreenWorks conducted an inventory of public high schools and middle schools located inside the Clean Water Services (CWS) boundary to identify opportunities to retrofit sites with Low Impact Development Approaches (LIDA) for stormwater management. The resulting report uses photos and site inventory forms to highlight potential retro-fit projects such as rain gardens and stormwater planters to capture runoff from roofs and parking lots. The report will be used by CWS staff to prioritize projects for design and construction by the agency and for identifying potential projects for school teacher/student implementation.
