We have taken rainwater for granted or treated it as an enemy sloping driveways to send rainwater to the street and nearest storm drain since the 1930's.

What is a watershed?
A. A watershed is basically a drainage area. In other words, when it rains, the rain follows the terrain, flowing down over the surface to a central low point – a river, creek, lake, or bay. The watershed is the entire area that drains water to that low point.
Grassroots Coalition believes in open government
and full disclosure of health and safety issues.
