About RainWise Rebates: With every storm, rain carries pollutants off our roofs, driveways and other hard surfaces to local creeks, Lake Washington and Puget Sound. Rain gardens and cisterns can help control this stormwater, but we need your help! In selected areas of Seattle, the City of Seattle and King County will pay up to 100 percent of the cost of installing rain gardens and cisterns on homeowners’ properties.
We recommend that you check your eligibility for a RainWise rebate in advance at https://700milliongallons.org/rainwise/eligibility.
