Waterwise Wednesday: It’s more than Big City

Denver’s Confluence Park, Chicago’s Riverwalk, and New York’s Highline Park are pretty, practical, and productive venues in their cities.
They’re all stormwater structures serving multiple purposes like water quality, flood prevention, recreation, habitat, and even economic development.

Scottsbluff’s Broadway bulb-outs, Riverside fishing ponds, and parking lot gardens follow the same philosophies using green infrastructure to provide not only water quality treatment but also places of recreation for our residents, habitats for a healthier environment, and ways to improve our quality of life.
