“Beautiful Solutions to Water Pollution”

Did you know that stormwater runoff is the major cause of water pollution throughout the entire Chesapeake Bay watershed? Working together, over 30 partners (including CEPA) are implementing a RainScaping Campaign to improve the health of Anne Arundel County’s tributaries and the Chesapeake Bay. The campaign will highlight pollutants carried to our waterways in stormwater runoff such as sediment, excess nutrients from overuse of fertilizers, pesticides, oils, metals, and other contaminants. The RainScaping Campaign will promote a comprehensive approach to easy-to-use solutions to clean up our streams, creeks, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. RainScaping techniques such as rain gardens, native tree and shrub planting, rain barrels, and permeable pavers are proven techniques that effectively manage stormwater runoff at the source, while protecting natural resources and providing wildlife habitat. For more information, go to www.rainscaping.org.
