Letter: Rain garden is a good beginning
I was excited to read about the rain garden coming to the Malcolm House in Jericho ["This garden waters itself," News, Aug. 21]. It is not only an inexpensive way to filter runoff pollution and recharge local groundwater, but shows how we are finding ways to reuse our precious resources.
Such projects signify a transformation of habits from wasting it all away to capturing what we can. It's a move toward an environmentally friendly solution to stormwater excess and to recycling rather than considering water a disposable resource.
