The City of Cardiff Council, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales are investing £2 million in Greener Grangetown, an innovative scheme to better manage rainwater in your community. Using the latest techniques, this scheme will catch, clean and divert rainwater directly into the River Taff instead of pumping it over 6 miles through the Vale of Glamorgan to the sea. It will help to make Grangetown a greener, cleaner place to live.
The first phase of this exciting initiative will begin in 2015 on the following streets: Bargoed St, Aber St, Ystrad St, Abercynon St, Holmesdale St, Taff Embankment, Blaenclydach Pl, Blaenclydach St, Ferndale St, Coedcae St, Cymmer St, Llanbradach St, Clydach St and Taff Terrace. This will include new trees, planters, grass channels, drainage kerbs and rain gardens.
