Buxton Road and Tyson Drive

In 2008 the city installed a rain garden at the intersection of Buxton Road and Tyson Drive. The pavement was removed and replaced with native plants and a series of porous pavers through the middle. Not only does the garden treat polluted stormwater runoff, but it also decreases the amount of runoff being conveyed into two drop inlets on Buxton Road, which previously became overwhelmed in storms.
