Water Conservation

Bentley Athletic Park in Bixby, Oklahoma, is home to a rain garden in the middle of a new roundabout. Water drains into the rain garden through pipes from the surrounding athletic fields and soaks into the ground. Excess water enters the storm sewer system through a riser within the rain garden.

A collaborative effort between the City of Bixby, Indian Nations Council of Governments, the Oklahoma Conservation Commission, and the Oklahoma Water Resources Board, this project won the 2013 Environment Project of the Year from the Oklahoma Chapter of the American Public Works Association.
