Wetlands for flood prevention

Today's Herald-Leader reports that the University of Kentucky's Arboretum has added a section that shows how individual homes can collect stormwater runoff and use it as a positive change in the residential landscape. The story stresses the use of these areas as a flood prevention technique (which is acheived locally for the University whose neighbors care about this) while demonstrating something that can work as a smaller local technique throughout the region.
