Storm Water Information
    The La Crosse Urban Stormwater Group is taking on the challenge of slowing down the rush of rain and snowmelt that takes pollution to rivers.  We are working together to educate you, residents and small business owners, about what runoff is, why it’s bad, and how to fix it. Our goal is not only to protect water, but to make our towns better places to live. To reach this goal, we want to award action, with the Soak It Up Project Award. Community members who’ve finished a stormwater management project on their property will be recognized, and their projects will be shared so others see how it’s done and be inspired to take on projects of their own. Visit our site for more details.
