Rain gardens fill with water during and after storms. The water percolates into the soil and dissipates through a process called evapotranspiration, a combination of evaporation and the release of moisture from plants.
Still, it is a good idea to plan for water discharge into an area away from buildings. Seasonal pools like this one are a good solution, and they're a valuable habitat for amphibians and other wildlife. These ponds dry up in the summer, so they don't encourage mosquitoes.
