By Alex Abdelwahab, Ottawa Metro News, August 27, 2017The City of Ottawa is hoping more homeowners and businesses in the Pinecrest area will consider installing rain gardens and rain barrels on their property.

This past weekend, they set up a booth at Westboro Fuse to encourage residents to get involved in the Pinecrest Neighbourhood Rain Project.

The project, which is part of a larger 50-year-plan to improve the health of the Pinecrest Creek, minimize flooding risks, and also reduce closures of Westboro Beach, is being run as a two-year pilot.
