Cedar Rapids Bank and Trust Company Receives Outstanding Partner Award for Work with City
The Iowa Water Conference recognized Cedar Rapids Bank and Trust with the Outstanding Partner Award for successfully leveraging their resources in partnership with the City of Cedar Rapids to protect and improve water quality. The company was honored at the Iowa Water Conference in Ames on Wednesday, March 21.
The Outstanding Partner Award highlights agencies that use and promote green infrastructure projects, like Cedar Rapids Bank and Trust's new zero-stormwater-runoff parking lot. The bank installed permeable pavers in the parking lot in 2017 through a project partially funded by the City's stormwater cost-share program.
The City's stormwater cost-share program is open to any person, business, or organization which pays a City stormwater utility fee. Those eligible can apply for grant money toward installing practices that improve stormwater quality and reduce stormwater quantity.
