Community Rain Gardens receive "Go-ahead"

The Marine on Saint Croix Community rain garden and stormwater project will proceed this summer thanks to action by the Marine City Council and the District’s Board of Managers.  Both groups comitted to completing the project through an agreement with Washington County as part of its road reconstruction project in the City this year.  Costs for the work came in over budget when the project was bid last summer and the District and its engineering firm explored many options to save money.  But in the end, the good will with its partners, the momentum with the community, and the financial risk of delay outweighed any cost savings.
