Some information on this topic is available on the WaterSense site (http://www.epa.gov/watersense/outdoor/rainwater_reuse.html).

EPA’s Green Infrastructure site (http://cfpub.epa.gov/npdes/greeninfrastructure/technology.cfm#rainharvesting) has even more comprehensive information on a wide variety of mitigation techniques, including the use of rain gardens.

The Michigan State Extension Service has a beautiful raingarden on display at its Tollgate facility in Novi, Michigan. Properly installed, raingardens intercept water runoff from driveways, downspouts, and elsewhere on the property before a sewer grate or water body. When in DC visiting in the spring of 2010, I saw a raingarden on display in front of EPA’s headquarters. A raingarden can have beautiful plants and flowers while also reducing pollution in our surface waters.
