Upper Roanoke River Roundtable Gardens
Rain gardens use native vegetation and soils to remove contaminants carried by stormwater runoff, reduce the volume of stormwater runoff, and improve the physical and biological integrity of receiving streams and water bodies by reducing stream bank erosion and negative effects on aquatic communities. Rain gardens also improve the aesthetics of an area compared to conventional stormwater management infrastructure.Upper Roanoke River Roundtable has partnered with Virginia Western Community College, the Western Virginia Water Authority, the City of Roanoke, and the Roanoke Regional Chamber of Commerce Leadership Roanoke Valley program to install rain gardens in various location throughout the watershed.
