Spring is finally on our doorstep, hip-checking Old Man Winter out of the picture! Which means it’s a good time to think about installing a rain garden to handle those inevitable spring rains. In today’s video from the Building Wisconsin TV series, host Stuart Keith and guest Karen Sands from the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District show how to build a rain garden for a sump pump discharge. On this project,  Mid City Plumbing & Heating disconnects an older home’s drain tile system that is feeding rain water into the sewer and re-directs that water into a sump pit to pump it out into the yard.
