Rain Garden Research Impact on Green Infrastructure
The rain garden monitoring research conducted by CNT and Hey and Associates (Hey), published in the recent report, “Monitoring and Documenting the Performance of Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs),” was featured in the July/August edition of Stormwater (SW). The article, “Rain Garden Monitoring,” cites the originality of CNT and Hey’s research and emphasizes the impact it will have on the future construction of green infrastructure elements within urban areas. As the detailed summary in SW’s article suggests, rain gardens are easily implemented and will effectively infiltrate large volumes of stormwater. Municipalities, property owners, and stormwater managers can use the data and processes outlined in the report to inform future construction of urban rain gardens.
