Working with Nature: TRWD Rainscapes

By August 30, 2022

With rain being in the forecast, learn how you can better align your landscapes with native ecosystems in ways that are both functional and beautiful.

The TRWD Rainscapes include a treatment train of green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) features that help detain and filter stormwater runoff on site, before it drains into the Trinity River. These best management practices encourage water conservation, improve water quality, and reduce flooding.

See how you can work with nature with our video or come see the TRWD Rainscapes in person during normal business hours at our offices 800 E. Northside Drive or take a virtual tour.
