photo 5 (2)Windridge has been recognized by governmental and corporate enterprise for its environmental sensitivity to stormwater runoff . The Indianapolis SustainIndy group, State of Indiana and Indianapolis Power & Light have contributed grant money and guidance to help fund and nurture efforts by Windridge to mitigate the detrimental effects of stormwater runoff. The results of the Windridge Rain Garden projects will not only create solutions on site, but will also have a positive environmental and economic impact downstream. These projects will significantly reduce the sedimentation, pollution, and flooding issues along the Fall Creek corridor. Unlike other novelty rain garden projects created for instructional or demonstrative purposes, the Windridge Rain Garden Projects are taking an integrated, fully engineered approach to solving a stormwater issue with an environmentally conscious solution.
