Record Rainfall, Rain Gardens Holding Strong

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

This year has been a record-setting year of rain fall here in central Ohio. In Westerville where our Brook Run rain gardens are located, their local rainfall tallies 56.54″. The annual average is 38.5″. That’s 46.8% more rain than what is expected! Even still, the residential and right-of-way rain gardens at Brook Run have held up nicely, helping to prevent this unprecedented amount of rain and the pollutants it carries from entering our local waterways.

 

Brook Run rain gardens in December

Our rain gardens are functioning very well despite the record rainfall from this year so far. Here are a couple pictures showing one of the right-of-way rain gardens filling up with water. The first picture shows the first cell almost full, and the second picture shows the overflow from the first starting to fill in.
