Default New RainScapes Manuals Now Online

New RainScapes Manuals Now Online

The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) RainScapes Program has new “How to RainScape” manuals available to the public online. The manuals provide information on rain gardens, conservation landscapes, canopy trees, green roofs, permeable pavements, rain barrels and cisterns and dry wells. Montgomery County property owners who are interested in developing environmentally-friendly landscapes on their property that also reduce runoff to local streams will learn about the benefits of rainscapes and how to:

• Assess a property for rainscape project suitability

• Design, plan and install a rainscape; and

• Estimate cost and maintenance requirements.

The Rainscapes Program educates property owners on ways to reduce the effects of stormwater pollution on local streams and waterways. DEP offers technical and financial assistance to encourage property owners to install eligible RainScapes techniques.
