ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. — The Car Wash of Ellwood City now has a rain garden to help it become more environmentally friendly, according to EllwoodCity.org.
The owners’ daughter said they wanted to become more sustainable, so when they wanted to do landscape work, they contacted the conservation office to help.
Resource Technician Lauren Anderson suggested a rain garden, a shallow depression in the ground with deep-rooted plants and grasses. The garden is designed to capture and treat stormwater runoff from parking lots and roadways, said the article.
The garden is expected to capture and treat about 3,200 gallons of runoff.
Local Boy Scout Troop 806 helped plant the garden and will maintain it in the future.
