Dylan Kletter, a student enrolled in the Sustainability Studies Minor, proposes to construct a small rain garden at the northwest corner of the Reckord Armory. This project would capture stormwater and enhance the aesthetics at a location in the core of campus . Polluted rainwater runoff is as a major pollution source to waterways. A rain garden will allow rainwater to infiltrate into the soil, reducing discharge rates into local creeks and streams and preventing, causing bank erosion and overall deterioration of the natural system.
