Slow it down, Soak it up, Keep it clean

Catch the RAIN, a pilot project in Dundas, helped homeowners reduce flooding and improve water quality in the Hamilton Harbour through green infrastructure.

Capture, absorb and filter rainwater with landscaping projects like:
• Rain gardens and swales
• Rain barrels
• Naturalized plantings
• Trees
• Permeable pavers

These projects help to decrease lot-level flooding and the impact of stormwater runoff on our watersheds. See our 2019 green infrastructure demonstration projects with homeowners in Dundas:
