Project Description

Behnke Nurseries Rain Check Rebate Demonstration

The purpose of this project was to provide a highly visible demonstration of the seven BMP practices being promoted by Prince George’s County’s Rain Check Rebate Program: cisterns, rain barrels, urban tree canopies, rain gardens, pavement removal, permeable pavement, and green roofs. In addition to achieving reductions in nutrient and sediment loads, the demonstration has helped educate property owners on how to receive rebates for installing the eligible practices. The LID Center prepared the planting plan and drawings, and designed promotional/educational signage, poster, and brochures.
