The essence of a watershed is connection; all the rain that falls on the land flows, drains, or seeps its way to our shared lakes, creeks, wetlands, and groundwater.
The cost share program provides funding assistance for the design and construction, restoration or implementation of stormwater management best management practices (BMPs) that protect and conserve water resources in the Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District.
Applications for 2017 are now open!.
First round deadline: April 10.
Second round deadline: June 12

Wondering whether your favorite plant can be used in a cost share project? RPBCWD approved plants for rain gardens and buffers are listed in the documents below. One of the differences between the two lists, is that only native plants may be used in buffers, but a selection of native-cultivars and non-native plants are allowed in rain garden projects.
Does that seem like a lot of plants? Looking for a little more guidance? Check out our "all-star" plant lists below to find recommendations for different soil-moisture and sunlight conditions.
