Rain to Recreation

Welcome to
Rain to Recreation

What Does It Mean?

Rain to Recreation is a watershed approach to reduce flooding, protect water quality and natural areas, and provide for recreational and educational opportunities.

The Partners

Three major partners in the Rain to Recreation Program include the Watershed Management Division of the Public Works and Utilities Department, the Parks and Recreation Department, and the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District. The City has had a long-standing interlocal agreement with the District to collaboratively address stormwater management issues. The partners also cooperate with other agencies as appropriate on a case-by-case basis.
