What is NEFCO doing regarding the region’s stormwater problems?

NEFCO recognizes the significance of this problem in the region and discusses this challenge in all of our water quality reports. Staff has urged continued stormwater education of all parties involved in the development process; the goal being to increase awareness of methods for reducing stormwater runoff from development projects, including the use of natural solutions such as wetlands (green infrastructure), instead of the more typical, concrete structure (grey infrastructure). We have worked cooperatively with our county soil and water conservation districts and county engineers who have the responsibility for addressing stormwater problems in their counties. NEFCO staff is currently a member of a flooding task force for one of our larger municipalities.
