City Earns Groundwater Guardian Desigation

The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department's four maintenance districts have earned Groundwater Guardian Green Site designation for the second year in a row. The Groundwater Foundation developed the program to encourage groundwater-friendly practices.

J.J. Yost, Planning and Construction Manager for the Parks and Recreation Department, said applicants document the environmental impact of their current practices for highly-managed green spaces such as golf courses, ball fields, nature centers and parks. The Groundwater Foundation looks at pesticide and fertilizer use, water use, pollution prevention, water quality and environmental stewardship in making its designations.

More information on the Groundwater Foundation is available at www.groundwater.org. More information on Lincoln's parks is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.
