15 garden owners on Lindevang Road have chosen to establish rain gardens, which receive water from their own rooftops. The rain gutters were disconnected from the combined sewer system, in which they priviously discharged the roof’s runoff. When it rains, one can follow the path of the water through open gutters into ditches, rain gardens trenches and soakaways (dry wells). As a result, the houses at Lindevang Road now contribute with much less water to combined sewer system.
The rainwater solutions in the gardens are a combination of rain gardens, soakaways (drywells) and differetn forms of lawn-covered trenches and ditches. All rooftop rainwater is managed locally via infiltration and evaporation.
The garden projects were realized in the period between autumn 2011 and autumn 2012.
