Above is a map provided by the Investigative Post about the location of future rain gardens in the West Side. The EPA’s regional administrator Judith Enck promoted the project claiming that Buffalo now has an opportunity to be a model for a nation. Rain gardens minimize the overflow problems caused by storm water lowering the pollution in the surrounding waterways. An award-winning sustainability program at Onondaga Lake in Syracuse is being discussed today at UB’s Green Infrastructure Forum. Another speaker at today’s event, Jill Jedlicka of the Buffalo Niagara Riverkeepers, said of the rain gardens, “We’re setting new standards of how we revitalize our communities,”
