Kansas City Rain Garden Redux

Nerd out with this link from Sustainable Cities Collective: Bio-Retention Breakthroughs in Kansas City, Missouri

"Much like a residential rain garden, the cell is a grassy, downhill area that contains native plants, a grass buffer strip, a sand bed, mulch and planting soil. The cell is designed to efficiently capture and absorb storm-water runoff and pollutants. An underdrain installed beneath the cell contains and treats the storm-water, improving water quality for any creeks or steams that receive water downstream."

If only our city could think outside the box.
Require a "cell" for rain water on every single piece of property that has a roof or hard surface would eliminate the need to upgrade our storm sewers.
I'm no tree huger I just don't want to have a $150 per month water bill.
Getting enforcement of this would be impossible. We live in a town of block heads.
