Project Proposal

Project Title: Rain Garden

Project participants: Kayla Adolph, Janelle Valdinger, City of Delaware, OWU Buildings and Grounds, potentially DPU, Acorn Farms, and Kurtz Brothers

Description and Overview of Project: This will be a continuation of Janelle’s project last year. It will be the installation of a depression type rain garden on OWU’s campus, next to Merrick Hall.


For the semester I will

-Calculate the size of the impervious area

-Decide on plants to be planted (taking into account blooming season and plants previously planted)

-Design the shape of the garden and have renderings created

-Create a budget and apply for a SIP (Student Individualized Project)

-Create a sign giving credit to those who helped the process

For the purpose of this class, I hope my final presentation will be the artist renderings and a confirmed installation date.

For the year- I will be following up on the installation day, a date which will be set before graduation to allow this year’s graduating class to have a more ~aesthetic~ graduation.

The data collected by the city will help me in my calculations of drainage basin size.
