Charlottesville, Va., has been awarded a $35,000 grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to conduct a storm water management study.
According to the Charlottesville Newsplex, the city has already made improvements by adding small gardens in parks to filter run-off water.
Kristel Riddervold with the Charlottesville Department of Public Works said that the goals were to improve water quality and promote ground water infiltration.
The city will match the grant, which will bring the funds up to $70,000 for the study. The city estimates that this amount should provide for a year’s worth of work.
