Help Save the Big Sioux River

The Big Sioux River meanders 420 miles down eastern South Dakota. Currently, the Big Sioux River is listed as impaired for bacteria and total suspended solids by the State of South Dakota. In an effort to improve the water quality of the Big Sioux River, state and local governments are working in partnership with private entities to restore the health of the river.

Sioux Falls Sustainability Coordinator Jessica Sexe will be at Siouxland Libraries Crooks Branch, 900 North West Avenue, on Monday, April 23, 2018, 6 to 7 p.m., to explain how cities are working to improve the water quality of the Big Sioux River and how citizens can help. As part of this class, she’ll also demonstrate how to make water-saving rain barrels and how they can be used to reduce storm water runoff
