Springtime brings flowers and warmer weather but it also brings strong storms with heavy rain. Installing a rain garden will soak up and filter storm water runoff, helping to keep pollutants out of our natural waterways. In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, Karen Sands from MMSD shows host Stuart Keith how to install a rain garden. On this project, Plumbers Local 75 contractor Mid City Plumbing & Heating disconnects an older home’s drain tile system that is feeding rainwater into the sewer and re-directs that water into a sump pit to pump it out into the yard. This video has over 20,000 views on YouTube.
