The latest updates from spring and summer 2016

The Task Force team has helped create some big changes around grounds. Here’s what we’ve been up to:

Beta Bridge clean up success!

Students and staff cleaned up the railroad tracks below Beta Bridge. The haul for the day included: 25 large trash bags, 3 tarps, a burnt couch, a tire, 2 large cans of paint, and and iPhone. All of this garbage was prevented from contaminating Meadow Creek, which is where this area drains.

Clark Nook – before and after.

The space behind Clark Hall was identified by the Task Force as the perfect location for a new BMP on grounds. After two years of planning, the Clark Nook Biofilter has finally been installed. Now all that’s left to do is the planting! Contact us if you are interested in helping out.

Before (February 2014) – Zigzag sidewalk and underutilized space.

After (August 2016) – Ready for planting!

Approval for IRC Biofilter

The Task Force has recently received approval to start work on another project. The group will now begin to plan the installation of a Biofilter in the IRC courtyard as one of this year’s projects.
