A rain garden project in Starkville has been awarded a regional award from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Mississippi State received the 2015 EPA Rain Catcher Award in the Neighborhood/Community Category for the Oktibbeha County Heritage Museum’s rain garden program.

The five-year project was designed and constructed by MSU students, faculty and volunteers.

The project included a rain garden, public use pavilion, cistern and sand filter and education signage to explain the elements of the project.

Over 200 MSU students from various fields of study worked on the garden which now serves as a demonstration site for North Mississippi.

The Rain Catcher Award recognizes excellence for using natural or man-made systems to manage stormwater and reduce water impacts.

The work helps reduce the volume of stormwater discharges and removes pollutants present in runoff.
