MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (09/02/2009) —TCF Bank Stadium is one of the nation’s most environmentally friendly sports stadiums, thanks in part to a storm water management system that will return rainwater to the Mississippi River as clean as it was before encountering humankind. And a lot of the credit for this eco-conscious water management goes to Minnesota-based businesses such as Rehbein Environmental Solutions, Inc. (RESI).
