The City of Rockford received the 2016 Stormwater Management Award from the Illinois Association for Floodplain and Stormwater Management for its overall efforts to improve stormwater management.

Courtney Walker was hired as the Douglas County (Nevada) stormwater program manager. Much of Walker’s 10-plus years of experience with stormwater and watershed management came in the Tahoe and Carson River Watershed area.

The City of Cedar Rapids received a grant of nearly $100,000 from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. The money will go toward funding the development of four Stormwater Best Management Practice pilot projects. Locations were specifically picked because they’re outside school areas. The pilot projects are hoping to improve water quality by lowering the amount of pollutants that enter streams and waterways.
