Our first depave after the pandemic began was small but mighty! A small crew of Depave staff, board members, and crew leaders worked in the heat to rip up 792 sf of 5” asphalt and 3” sub gravel to make room for 4 shade trees to provide refuge for the kiddos on the playground. This will reduce the stormwater runoff by 7,920 gallons annually. THANK YOU to our amazing little crew of volunteers!!
