Department of Public Works/ City of Bowling Green
Since March 2003, the City of Bowling Green has been striving to meet US EPA mandated requirements to improve water quality. Runoff from urban areas such as Bowling Green carries with it a wide range of contaminants that degrade water quality. The goal of Bowling Green's storm water program is to educate the public about things we can all do to improve water quality. Clean water is everyone's responsibility.
For 20 years WKYU-PBS has provided this area with free tree seedlings to help reduce our carbon footprint. To date we have planted over 250,000 trees. Also, we are eliminating the use of videotape, a petroleum product, in our station and HSSN operations. Finally, this year we switched to a new digital transmitter which reduced our on-site power consumption by 66%.
