District Supplied Sites

Info from the source:

We anticipate elementary school field trips touring the CAA site, so the concepts about the water quality benefits of the native landscape can be fairly basic:

  • Native plants grow well in our climate; once established, they can survive heat, cold and drought, as well as absorb heavy rainfall
  • Their deep roots help filter pollutants and hold more water than turf grass
  • Anything that is on the ground will end up in the water
  • The CAA landscape will capture 7.9 inches of rainfall over a 24 hour period
