The Rising Tide
Jordan Creek. It wasn’t long before Springfield residents became familiar with the wrath of the angry waterway.
Jordan Creek flooded Boonville Avenue in 1909, causing citizens to seek higher ground.
According to the book Jordan Creek: Story of an Urban Stream by Loring Bullard, Jordan Creek flooded at least nine times between 1844 and 1909, which was one of the worst floods on record. By 1927, Springfield residents had tired of dealing with flood-damaged property and water-soaked homes, so voters passed a measure to box in Jordan Creek using concrete. One year later, in 1928, the “lid” over Jordan Creek between Main Street and Boonville Avenue was complete. But the tall concrete banks didn’t stop the flooding.
In 1932, the wrath of Jordan Creek was felt once again when record flooding took its toll on the city, which led to more of Jordan Creek being entombed in concrete. The result was the creation of the Jordan Creek Box and those graffitied tunnels that snake their way under city streets. At the time, it was said the Jordan had finally been tamed, but this was just the beginning of Springfield’s tumultuous relationship with its surrounding waterways.
The Root of the Problem
Back at his office inside the Watershed Center, Kromrey’s view is starkly different from that at Jordan Creek. Instead of being surrounded by paved parking lots and brick buildings, the Watershed is walled in by trees, rain gardens and Valley Water Mill Lake where anglers cast their lines for crappie, bass and catfish.
“When talking about water quality, you’re starting at the right place,” Kromrey says. The Watershed got its start in the early 1980s after two large algae blooms contaminated Springfield’s drinking water, which comes from the James River, Fellows Lake, McDaniel Lake and the Fullbright Spring. The water coming out of taps was gray in color and emitted a foul odor. The water was safe to drink, but the public was spooked—and for good reason. “Algae blooms form when nutrients like fertilizer and septic waste get into the waterways,” Kromrey explains. To address the foul water, Springfield created the Watershed Committee of the Ozarks in 1984 to serve as a public advocate for water quality. As executive director of the committee, Kromrey’s mission is to protect and sustain Springfield’s water supply through projects and education.
Scattered around the property are examples of projects Kromrey and the Watershed are working to install throughout Springfield. Rain gardens overflowing with native plants and flowers, are the easiest to spot thanks to the cuts in the concrete, which allow water to flow in and out of the garden. “These plants attract monarch butterflies, bees and all kinds of insects,” Kromrey says. “We don’t need fertilizer or pesticides because these plants are native and have adapted to our climate.” Another key advantage—their root systems.
Native plants like blackeyed susans are great for managing stormwater. Their root systems keep the soil locked down. (417mag)May 29, 2015
Hey Flower Guy! Graduating class
Keith’s Market of Covelo with a batch of beautiful bouquets for Valentine’s Day and they wanted more. We were looking to expand our bouquet market to Boonville and Anderson Valley.
Unfortunately, Adam Gittstein passed away March 12, 2015, here in Ukiah. He was on his way to Boonville. He never made it.
The staff at UVMC, the friends he made so quickly in this little town, Ukiah, will miss him terribly. I will miss him and his go get ’em attitude. He was one of my ardent fans. His favorite arrangement of mine was the one I just finished. He was anxious to trumpet to the world that they should all come to us for their floral and wedding needs. Adam, you will be missed.
Of course, that hasn’t stopped the progress in our lil studio. The sink in! I ordered a flower cooler and it is in place, just in time for the string of weddings that are lining up. Small weddings so far but each so important. My Brides, Michelle and Reyanna have been delightful and open to ideas that help to fit their budget.
It was an honor to do my first wedding at the Saturday Afternoon Clubhouse. The staff is so accommodating and the facility so bright, clean and accessible. This bride was so hands on, she created some 250 paper filter roses to decorate the stage area of the SAC. It framed her altar area beautifully.
W/E created sweet centerpieces that quickly became favors to parting guests. What a great way to stretch a budget!
Our second wedding at the JS Ranch was a full on set up. Following the current trends, centerpieces were presented in Mason Jars (Kerr) with flowers that matched the color theme of blue an... (Ukiah Daily Journal)
