Permeable Paving

Removing unnecessary pavement or converting impervious surfaces to porous pavement allows stormwater to penetrate soils.This alleviates pressure on storm drains, eliminates non-point pollution sources, and activates nature’s filtration process.

MANURE CONTROL & NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT

When improperly managed, livestock manure can contaminate both surface and ground water with excessive nutrients and harmful bacteria. Investing in new technologies can help manage manure and reduce water pollution.

Green, Clean Bridges & Elevated Highways

Polluted stormwater rolls off bridges directly into waterways below. Rain gardens and bioswales on land adjacent to bridges can capture and clean the stormwater.
