Retain The Rain to reduce stormwater runoff, check pollution

Working together, we can help to lower the level of future flooding on the Mississippi River, control storm water runoff and reduce pollution of streams and rivers.

You can make a difference to reduce runoff and pollution from storm water. In urban areas, rain, melting snow or any water that doesn't soak into the ground flows into a community's storm sewers.
