In addition to practices within our building, our commitment to the environment is also evident on our property. During the winter rains, runoff from our roof and parking area used to flow directly into storm drains that dumped into Nettle Creek and then flowed into Tryon Creek. To mitigate this problem, we constructed a bioswale and rain garden to capture this water and slowly absorb it. Any overflow during heavy rain is now filtered first before it reaches the storm drain.
