MMSD Rain Gardens Initiative Looks Like A Winner

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District is announcing a Rain Gardens Initiative - - and it comes with discounts on plantings for your property that will make better use of rainwater than letting it add to system overflows.

Or how about an inexpensive rain barrel to add to your garden?

MMSD will sell you one for a mere $30 - - and they've sold 5,480 to date.

This is the kind of grassroots planning that gets results, one home and property at a time, and puts substance behind the MMSD conservation slogan, "Every Drop Counts."
