Group Description

Every drop counts. Share photos of your actions to reduce runoff and protect your local waterways!

We're looking for photos of rain barrels, rain gardens, disconnected downspouts, tree plantings, permeable pavement, dry wells, and green roofs.

For more information on those topics:
Rain barrels
Rain gardens
Disconnected downspouts
Tree plantings
Permeable pavement
Dry wells
Green roofs

Feel free to include photos that show:

• the "before" and "after" of your project
• your project doing its job, e.g. the rain garden capturing the water during a rain shower
• your project at different times of the year – let's see your rain garden in full bloom!

Feel free to tag your photos so others living nearby might be able to follow suit! Useful tags could include:

• your town or city, state, zip code
• the type of project: rain garden, rain barrel, green roof, drywell, etc
• who did the project: homeowner, business, school group, garden club, municipal project

While uploading images that were taken from your phone, you may be prompted to include a map of your location. While it would be helpful (but not necessary) to share your town or state, we ask that you do not share residential addresses. If your location information appears on a map with your photo, flickr allows you to hide or delete that information.

• just show someone else's copyrighted work (for example, a photo of a product)
• serve mainly to advertise a product
• show nudity, drugs, violence, or symbols or acts of hatred.
• are illegal or prohibited
• violate Flickr's Community Guidelines

Note that EPA reserves the right to deny photos for any reason and remove them from the Flickr site.

Also, by submitting photos, you give the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) permission to use them for non-profit governmental purposes, including but not limited to environmental education and awareness. This permission includes, but is not limited to, publication by EPA in printed materials, television broadcasts, websites, or our intranet. You will not be compensated for such use. However, we will always give you a heads up that we're featuring your work! Where applicable, we will give you credit for the photos too!

We look forward to sharing your great work!
