Toilet Rebate Program
Purchase water saving toilets for $50-$60.
“Hey, it’s not going to attract birds and butterflies like a rain garden, but replacing your old toilet with a new water conserving fixture will help local rivers and Lake Michigan just the same.”
Program runs May 1 – May 31 or while supplies last

To the South East Wisconsin Rain Garden Resources website!
The purpose of this website is to help connect community members with photos and information regarding one of the most earth-friendly practices fighting runoff pollution- Rain Gardens! By definition, a rain garden is a garden that uses native landscaping to soak up rainwater coming from your downspout or drainage system.

The benefits provided by rain gardens:
- Increasing the amount of water that filters into the ground, which recharges local and regional aquifers
- Helping protect communities from flooding and drainage problems
- Helping protect streams and lakes from pollutants carried by urban stormwater- lawn fertilizers and pesticides, oil and other fluids that leak from cars, and numerous harmful substances that wash off roofs and paved areas
- Enhancing the beauty of yards and neighborhoods
- Providing valuable habitat for birds, butterflies, and many beneficial insects
