  Rain Garden

AFSRC scientists are collaborating with West Virginia State University and partnering with the city of Beckley, WV to design soils constructed from local materials do use as filtration material in bio-filtration systems for treating stormwater runoff. This experimental bio-filtration system, also referred to as a rain garden, is situated next to a municipal park, exhibition mine, and youth museum in Beckley where stakeholders and the public can be educated about the stormwater management system.
