(WICHITA, Kan.) — The city of Wichita hopes a rain garden will protect the Arkansas River.
Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer and other community leaders were on hand Friday morning for a ribbon-cutting for the Grotto Rain Garden.
It's located on the River Bike Path, south of the Keeper of the Plains and along the north bank.
The newly-installed rain garden is designed to naturally filter storm water runoff before it reaches the river. Rain gardens are often used as an attractive solution to minimiming surface water pollution.
