Kentucky Commonwealth Clean-Up Day

On Saturday, March 24, members and friends of the WKU-Habitat for Humanity Durbin Estate Project participated in a site cleanup, hosted as part of Commonwealth Cleanup Week. A large portion of the site-the future home to a model mixed-income, mixed-use green affordable housing community-is a large detention basin that collects stormwater from a 270 acre city streets catchment area. Following heavy rains, new trash is carried to and deposited at the site. With EPA funding awarded by the Kentucky Division of Water, an integrated green infrastructure is being developed at the site to address this problem. Until it is implemented, regular trash cleanups are needed. It is wonderful to have community members and friends of the project volunteer their time to make a difference. Eleven people participated, and fun was had by all. Thanks goes to the City of Bowling Green Solid Waste Division for providing supplies for the event. Click here for photo galery.
