LENEXA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State is getting a $20,000 federal grant for a green infrastructure project.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said in a release Thursday the university is getting the grant to create “living laboratories” to conduct green infrastructure monitoring at the rain garden at the university’s International Student Center and at art museum’s meadow.

The EPA says the grant is aimed at encouraging sustainable storm water management by educating scientists, designers and engineers about green infrastructure and protecting water quality.

The EPA says is award builds on the agency’s Campus RainWorks Challenge, in which faculty and student teams design green infrastructure campus projects.

Kansas State won a $2,000 first-place prize in 2013.
