Lily Lake Rain Garden Planting

Volunteers will assist Washington County Conservation and Middle St. Croix Watershed in planting native grasses and flowers at the recently completed rain garden at Lily Lake Park.





This regional infiltration basin will collect and filter stormwater from a large area of land that includes commercial and residential property, delivering it to Lily Lake cleaner and with less phosphorus.


After working for years to reduce stormwater runoff to Lily Lake through rain gardens, gully stabilization projects, stormwater pond retrofits, and volunteer clean-up activities, this, volunteers' help on this final project, is expected to capture enough phosphorus to allow Lily Lake to be taken off of the state’s impaired waters list.
