Middleton Neighborhood Leaf-Free Streets Pilot Study— engaging citizens to improve the quality of storm water runoff
Thursday, March 16
6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Clark Street Community School, 2429 Clark Street, Middleton
Speakers: Lloyd Eagan and Herb Garn
Learn about the results of this study and what you can do to improve leaf management and protect the quality of your streams and lakes. The City of Middleton partnered with the Friends of Pheasant Branch and Dane County to do a study to involve residents in helping to remove leaves from the street in front of their home prior to predicted rain events. Phosphorus leached from leaves in the street has been shown to be a major source in urban runoff that can have harmful effects on lakes and streams, causing algal blooms, low oxygen levels and reduced water clarity. Participants in the pilot study were asked to remove leaves from their part of the street, curb, and storm drain before an announced rainfall event. The study was conducted in portions of Elmwood and Hubbard Avenues neighborhood, Middleton, from October 1 through November 30, 2016.
Free and open to the public
