Each year, we award those in our community who have used nature-based approaches to reduce runoff pollution on their property.

Nominate a Property

Any project that has altered the landscape to direct, capture, or absorb stormwater runoff can be nominated.

Property owners who have implemented BMPs (Best Management Practices) including rain gardens, infiltration trenches, permeable pavement, rain barrels, native plantings, berms, or swales make a great nominee.
