Jeanine Nicarico Child Advocacy and Neutral Exchange Center Native/Indigenous Landscape

The landscape design slows water runoff from the building and grounds, directing it to deep rooted native prairie and indigenous plant areas.  The natural process filters various types of pollutants from all forms of surface water due to storm events and runoff.  The landscape also slows the movement of surface water, diverting much of it from the storm sewer infrastructure.
