The article focuses on the collaboration of businesses in Menasha, Wisconsin with the state and federal environment agencies for a research project for the evaluation of biolfiltration to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff. Businesses who initiated the project include SCA Tissue, Miron Construction and MacMahon Engineers Architect. They team up with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Geological Survey. Research results are expected to help quantify the cost-effectiveness of filtering with the minimum soil thickness.
