RainScapes are a vital component of the County's watershed restoration efforts. RainScapes techniques help capture and hold rainfall and then release it in a way that simulates natural drainage.
Online manuals offer detailed guidance on how to assess a property and design the optimal site and design of RainScapes techniques including rain gardens, conservation landscapes, canopy trees, green roofs, permeable pavements, rain barrels and cisterns and dry wells. The manuals will enable the user to:
Assess a property for rainscape project suitability.
Design, plan and install a rainscape; and
Estimate cost and maintenance requirements.
