Reroute: Disconnect your roof leader.
A roof that is 1,000 square feet in size produces more than 600 gallons of storm runoff for every 1 inch of rain. Disconnect your roof leader or downspout to keep this water out of the sewer system!
Reclaim: Install a rain barrel.
Capture the water that used to drain into the sewer system from your roof leader by using a rain barrel.
Recharge: Plant a rain garden.
Conserve water and reduce runoff by letting that extra water maintain a beautiful rain garden. Best of all, you won’t have to remember to water it!
