Carol McMahon

Carol is an enthusiastic neighborhood steward. She installed her rain garden many years ago before we began our cluster project, and she was excited to continue to add GSI solutions to her property.
— Alicia Kellogg, SCD Community Conservation Project Coordinator

Carol is an enthusiastic neighborhood steward who has worked with SCD to install a rain garden and a rain barrel system at her home to reduce stormwater runoff. Carol then took initiative to share her projects with neighbors by inviting them to participate in a cost-share opportunity with the City of Lynnwood and SCD. Carolโ€™s neighbors followed her enthusiastic lead by installing rain barrels and rain gardens at their homes, resulting in their neighborhood collectively capturing and filtering substantial stormwater runoff and protecting local waterways.
