WEFTEC Service Project Leaves Green Footprint That Continues To Grow

May 26, 2012

Achievements, Participate

During each of the past four WEFTEC® events, volunteers have worked together to leave a green footprint on conference host cities. Take a look at the results.

After 18 months, the Bioswales in the Bayou project constructed during WEFTEC 2010 has transformed the New Orleans site. The plants now are in full bloom, making the site nearly unrecognizable from how it appeared immediately after planting. Find more details about this project in the WEF Highlights article “Volunteers Dig In at WEFTEC 2010 To Build Bioswales.”

The annual WEFTEC service project is organized by the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) Students and Young Professionals Committee. Other previous projects include the 2011 Walkway to Wetlands project in Los Angeles; the 2009 Wading for Wetlands project in Orlando, Fla.; and the 2008 Getting Out of the Gutter project in Chicago.
