Rain Gardens
to improve
Water Quality
On July 1, the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded two grants totaling $350,000 to build rain gardens to improve water quality in the Illinois River Watershed and the Beaver Lake Watershed. The Illinois River Watershed Partnership was awarded $211,000 and Beaver Water District was awarded $139,000 to build 60 demonstration rain gardens over the next three years.
Rain Garden Academies will be held each fall and spring for those interested in learning more about how to install, maintain, and monitor rain gardens. 
For more information on these grants and a part-time Rain Garden Resource Specialist position with the IRWP,
