Water in the Quad Cities has been getting talked about a lot lately. After a study that was recently released by EWG, a research and advocacy group, found per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances at more than 40 locations in 31 states, and it was found right here in Iowa.

There are many ways to help keep our water clean, and an event right here in the Quad Cities wants to help educate us about. this event is called Retain the rain kiosk

Black Hawk College will be partnering with River Action to educate the public on the importance of retaining rain in our community. And you're invited. You can stop by the new Retain the Rain kiosk in the Quad-Cities Campus Library in Building 1 for an interactive experience!

This is a free event that is open to anyone who wants to learn and help. The main goal of this event is to clearly educate and train others while also offering and engaging and unique experience.

Working together, one home or business at a time, we can reduce storm water runoff in our community and improve the water quality of our streams, lakes and rivers – most notably, the Mississippi River.

The Black Hawk College Quad-Cities Campus Library is open Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The college will be closed Monday, Feb. 17 for Presidents' Day.
