Under The Sink also educates citizens about ways to harvest rainwater, and construct rain gardens. In 2013, Under The Sink was also a distribution point for rain barrel kits, and plans are to continue the project in 2014, and beyond if possible. The surrounding grounds at Under The Sink incorporate a series of 14 rain gardens, multiple bioswales, dry streambeds, and a level spreader to assist in stormwater diversion and retention. There are also interpretive signs mounted at various locations that describe their construction, purpose, and benefits.
Brochures are available onsite, as well as online for the public to learn about these various types of water conservation practices that can be applied to their home property as well. The importance of storm drain awareness is also stressed with the availability of brochures that inform the public how easily they can become polluted and how that affects the environment, wildlife, and ground water supply.
