Right now, rain is something that we are all (almost all anyway) wishing for. Rain ends the fires and brings on the chanterelles. If this year is anything close to normal though, by sometime in November we will be wishing for anything but rain. When it does rain more and more communities are working to keep that rain from flooding streams and treatment plants by using green stormwater infrastructure. Green stormwater systems use a combination of organics and sand to allow rapid infiltration and contaminant removal. They are green systems and are an asset to communities.
