Storm Water Improvement Project at Common Ground Meditation Center

Last year, Common Ground Meditation Center (2700 East 26th Street and site of the old Diner Restaurant) was granted funding from the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) to help in making site improvements that would increase green space at the site and also benefit the Mississippi River by decreasing impervious surfaces, reducing runoff and pollutant generation; and increasing infiltration. The plan also provided for diverse planting with an emphasis on native plants.

The document below describes the project in more detail.
