Stormwater Management

Find out how a local company is using leaves to help keep our streams and waterways clean. The EPA has identified non-point source pollution, primarily oil, grease and heavy metals from trucks and automobiles as a major source (75%) of pollution in our nation’s rivers. Engineers Jim Lenhart and Bill Jabs have developed a filtering system to address the needs of stormwater management.
