SNHU rain garden

Our undergraduate research project is the planning, development, and installation of a phytoremediating rain garden on the SNHU campus. As part of an EPA grant-funded program, our group will be responsible for the entire creation process of this rain garden, from preplanning, budgeting, and research, to installation and policy and procedure development. This project aims to accomplish multiple goals, namely, 1) to identify and remediate soil and water pollutants in the specified portion of the SNHU campus, 2) to increase campus awareness of environmental issues and actions that can be taken to help, and 3) to hopefully serve as proof of concept for the future installation of further rain gardens at SNHU. The site will be highly visible, and all relevant documentation will be created and catalogued by our group. (Author abstract)
