On April 4, 2012, the Kemp City Park EarthKind™ Rose Garden was in full bloom.  The roses survived the drought without any problem for two main reasons: First was the selection of EarthKind™ Knockout Roses, a drought-tolerant plant, and second was the availability of harvested rain water, applied by drip-irrigation, during the drought and water restrictions.

The Kemp City Park rainwater collection system catches water from the roof of the 600-square -foot restroom facility. The water is stored in a 300-gallon low-profile (LOF) storage tank made from high density linear polyethylene.
