Water Quality: Capturing Stormwater Runoff


Burns Park Rain Garden Clean Up

Date: August 8, 2021
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan

When rain hits the roofs, streets, and driveways of our neighborhoods, it washes pollution into streams and rivers. Rain gardens are a natural way of capturing and filtering stormwater runoff. The R.L. Deppmann team was tasked with cleaning up and removing invasive plant species from one of Ann Arbor's 62 rain gardens which serve a critical role minimizing pollution in the watershed. Stormwater runoff in this area runs into the Huron River which stretches 130 miles and flows into Lake Erie. Deppmann's efforts at Burns Park will ensure that this large rain garden continues to improve water quality for the local community and beyond.

Together the employees of R.L. Deppmann walked, ran and biked a total of 1,051.60 miles. For every mile completed, Deppmann donated $1.00 to the selected charities, which was then matched by Xylem Watermark for a total donation amount of $2,103.20.

Health & Wellness Challenge


Annual Wellness Contest and Charitable Contribution

Date: January 18 - June 25, 2021
Location: Various, Michigan and Ohio

R.L. Deppmann's annual health and wellness competition has been a much anticipated group activity since 2012. This nine-year-long tradition has evolved from a wellness contest to a contest with a charitable twist.

Each January, Deppmann team members who wish to participate, individually make positive lifestyle changes both at home and around the office. Each pound lost is matched by the company with a $3.00 donation to a health-focused charity of choice. For the past two years, the charity chosen has been the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
