December 2019 | Leaders in our Community

It Takes A Village

Making our neighborhoods water friendly isn’t necessarily easy, but surrounding ourselves with good people who choose sustainability in their own day to day work makes a big difference. The La Crosse area is filled with everyday leaders who value local waterways and go above and beyond to do what’s needed to make them healthier.

Roush Rentals, our 2019 Soak it Up! Award winner, involves local experts in reducing runoff from its properties years before ground is broken. They assess the site, provide information, and find practical ways to protect our waters.

Managing stormwater runoff is not one-size-fits-all work. Climate change and increasing amounts of rain make this work more urgent. Our community needs to pull together, and with help from local businesses and our city governments, we can manage runoff in a way that’s better and smarter.
