Stormwater Education

Regional Urban Stormwater Demonstration Site 

101 E. Greene St. Postville, Iowa

Northeast Iowa offers a unique landscape unlike any other in the state of Iowa. Steep limestone bluffs and rolling hills offer unique interactions between humans and the watershed they live in. The Stormwater Demonstration Site introduces urban stormwater conservation by demonstrating best management practices like rain gardens, bioswales, infiltration trenches, native plantings, and many more. Water that lands on the site during a rain event is treated through infiltration before entering the City Stormwater system, or held in the landscape, improving water quality and reducing flooding within the watershed.
