This story archive on LaCrosseWaters.org features people in La Crosse County who act every day to minimize storm water runoff and pollution of area streams. Builder John Lautz meticulously uses best practices for erosion control on the area’s hilly home sites, and teaches others to do the same. Mike Pieper, Vice President for Finance at Wisconsin Technical College, makes visionary investments to minimize runoff, create beautiful environments for people, and improve the institution’s bottom line.
NewGround connected with these people, heard and produced their stories, and made them public on the group’s website. The stories can be used for presentations at events, group discussion starters, and teaching. They are part of an expanding chorus of “ordinary” voices speaking up for smart action to protect our water.
