From parking lot to paradise

Removing hard surfaces, like pavement, and replacing them with LID features, like rain gardens, native plants and grasses, and permeable surfaces, allows rainwater to infiltrate and filter into the ground naturally, preventing polluted runoff from reaching Lake Simcoe.
