Rainfall Simulator

Our Department's Rainfall Simulator is a unique educational tool used to show what happens when rain falls on different surfaces. The demonstration illustrates how much water is lost to runoff versus retained under a variety of soil systems. See below for video demonstrations or contact us to request this activity for your organization or educational group. 

Christal Campbell gives a demonstration on stormwater runoff. Learn preventative measures you can take at home to help mitigate stormwater and pollution from getting into our lakes, rivers, and streams.
