NOVA Receives Check from Dominion for Environmental Efforts

NOVA was recently awarded $30,000 from Dominion Resources and the Dominion Foundation to support projects in energy and sustainability.

As part of the grant, NOVA will develop sustainable practice zones containing rain gardens, a cistern and the use of solar energy on the Annandale Campus. Signs will educate the public on positive impacts these practices have on the Accotink Creek Watershed in Fairfax, Va.

The grant would not be possible without the efforts of the Office of Grants, including Director Deborah Rosen and Grants Writer Susi Mattheisen.
