Stormwater Partnership: Rain Garden Testing

Can rain gardens effectively remove pollutants from stormwater? MU Engineering & Columbia’s Stormwater Utility partner up to find out.

Testing sites have been set up to measure just how effective rain gardens can be at removing pollutants from stormwater.

Dr. Enos Innis, Assistant Teaching Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering, University of Missouri, and Andy Prunty, an engineering student interning with the stormwater utility, explain how the sites were designed and built, how the testing happens, and what information they hope to gather from these sites.
