South Berkeley Recycling Center Rain Garden
Downstream Strategies designed and constructed a rain garden demonstration project at the South Berkeley Recycling Center in Inwood, West Virginia. The small wetland acts as a biofiltration unit that removes pollutants from runoff coming from the dirt and gravel driveway and from yard waste—before the pollutants reach nearby streams. Native plants were used in the constructed wetland, which was designed to highlight the beauty and value to wildlife of native wetland species.
