Inscription.  Bioretention Gardens absorb rainwater and filter pollutants using soil, stone and plants.

Stormwater is rain that runs off hard surfaces and carries pollution to our streams. Montgomery County has thousands of practices like this one to protect streams and the Chesapeake Bay.

They're our streams. Let's keep them clean!
