dc.description.abstractThis project was started by students from Drake Environmental Action League (DEAL) who wanted to improve the water quality of storm water runoff coming from Drake University's campus. Drake faculty and staff and the City of Des Moines assisted students in identifying best management practices for the highly visible site adjacent to Cline Hall that contributes to water quality issues. Through this project, we are hoping to install one bio swale and one bio retention cell to infiltrate and filter storm water. The initial goal of this project is to capture and treat the runoff before entering Ravine Creek but the scope of the project has expanded beyond that. Additionally, we intend to use this project to provide academic and research opportunities to Drake students and faculty as well as to host educational events to the broader community about the importance of water quality.en_US
