Rain Comes to Barrio Kroeger Lane

Not long after lamenting the lack of rain in my last post about our project at Barrio Kroeger Lane, the rain finally came!

Monday night a storm passed through. There was enough rain to cause stormwater to run along the sides of the street, through the curb cuts and into the basins. A few of the basins that are still being constructed got quite a bit of water (see photo)!

I went down this morning with Executive Director Paul Green to show him the progress we have made. He was excited to see the middle school-aged kids at work, and the extensive rainwater harvesting basins and native plantings that have been done.

The photos below show one of the completed basins and Paul talking to Nathan Fenoglio, one of the Southwest Conservation Corps crew leaders.
