You can help keep Clermont County streams clean and reduce local drainage problems. How? Build a rain garden! Though it may not seem like much, each rain garden planted in Clermont County helps reduce the volume of runoff and remove pollutants before they enter local streams and rivers. These individual gardens, when combined with others, can go a long way toward helping reduce drainage and flooding problems, and keeping our streams clean.
