Join Clearwater and the City of Kingston on a half day tour of raingardens and biofilters in Kingston. Raingardens play an important role in reducing stormwater flows and pollutant loads which drain into our creeks, rivers and bay.

This half day tour is lead by Alan West, Kingston Council’s Engineering Design Team Leader. You will be taken to WSUD sites developed over the past ten years to discuss successes and lessons learnt from each of the projects.
