Rain Harvest Arts Festival
Join a celebration of water, science, and art at the third annual Rain Harvest Arts Festival hosted by the Providence Stormwater Innovation Center, The Providence Parks Department, and Rogers Williams Park Conservancy. This free community event in Roger Williams Park celebrates the Providence Parks Department’s investment in over 40 projects to clean polluted stormwater runoff before it enters the ponds in the park. Their significant efforts to improve water quality in Providence has inspired the festival, which will highlight the importance of clean water in our communities and the impact it has on our lives.
Join us on October 15th, 2022, 10:00 am- 2:00 pm.
What is Green Infrastructure?
Green infrastructure is an approach used to manage stormwater that diverts contaminated runoff from the roadways before it is piped directly to the water body. Once the stormwater is diverted into the green infrastructure site, natural vegetation and soils are used to purify the water, remove contaminants and create healthier urban environments. Green infrastructure reduces and treats stormwater at its source while delivering environmental, social, and economic benefits.
