Monitoring equipment installed

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

The monitoring equipment for the neighborhood rain garden project in the Brook Run subdivision has been installed. A flow/velocity meter and a rain gauge were set up to record storm water events in the outlet pipe for the neighborhood. Monitoring will last for three years, recording data before and after installation of all the rain gardens.

Rain Garden coming to UU Church

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW), in partnership with Sierra Club, Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Central Ohio Rain Garden Initiative (CORGI), will construct a rain garden and water catchment system this fall at First Unitarian Universalist Church in Clintonville, funded by a $10,000 grant from MillerCoors and RiverNetwork.

This demonstration project is step one in FLOW’s goal of 10 similar projects at local schools, churches, small businesses and other institutions by 2012.  Thanks to the outreach campaign associated with this project, several community groups are taking steps towards installing their own rain gardens!

Community members and First UU members met at two meetings in early August to learn more about rain gardens, preview the design for the First UU rain garden, and sign up to help with installation.  Construction is set to take place later this fall.  To learn more about this project or get involved, contact Heather Dean at hdean@olentangywatershed.org or 614-267-3386.
