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.
