About: Most of the development in the Champagne Creek watershed occurred before stormwater controls were required. As a result, stormwater flows have increased, and creek water quality has declined. This project includes design and construction of a rain garden to collect and treat road runoff, upstream of Champagne Creek. The Champagne Creek rain garden is 1,000 square feet in area and collects runoff from more than 3 acres of surrounding area!
