Decorah Bank & Trust’s $10,000 donation will pay for permeable pavers that will enhance design and use of the new Water Street Park. Permeable pavers are an alternative to traditional outdoor pavers where water can filter through the surface to the underlying soil and drainage system. Rain water would otherwise puddle on the surface and run down the parking lot collecting pollutants, essentially destroying the quality of water runoff.
“We at Decorah Bank & Trust Company believe that one responsibility of running a good business is finding ways to reduce its impact on environment. The Bank will continue its efforts, looking for more ways to contribute to a clean and healthy environment for its employees, customers, and community.” – Joe Grimstad, Executive Vice President
