August 2019 | Featured Nomination, Gordy & Barb Roberts
The Soak it Up! Award
Local home and business owners who reduce runoff pollution are NOW being nominated for the 2019 Soak it Up! Award. Photos below show the latest nomination, a rain garden installation at the home of Gordy and Barb Roberts in La Crosse. The rain garden was installed to reduce runoff from their backyard to Pammel Creek, which borders their property.
“It is amazing to see our runoff water drain into the rain garden space and fill it during a hard rain. Then within 12 hours that pool of water goes down, cleansed by the earth. The pooled water has never come close to the creek.” ~ Barb Roberts
