Recreation Center site before project; downspouts sent rain to parking lot. 2002.
Very large roof surface area for catching rain.
Redirected downspouts now send storm runoff into rock swale with xeric (low moisture) plants.
No grass means no need for water.
Planting around the rock swale.
Local tribal words for water.
Lots of help with planting from local volunteer youths.
School students painted one of the rain barrels.
