PRS Cascade Property
T
he PRS Cascade property acquisition was an opportunity for the City of Atlanta to work with a developer to preserve greenspace along the main stem of Utoy Creek in southwest Atlanta. This property is comprised of almost 23 acres, all of which is located within the 100-year floodplain of Utoy Creek. The PRS Cascade property will also protect several wetlands on the property. In addition to providing superior wildlife habitat, wetlands can provide initial treatment of polluted stormwater and reduce flooding downstream through its storage capacity. When the velocity of stormwater that flows into the system is reduced, pollutants are allowed to settle out of the stormwater before continuing downstream. Whether it provides connectivity, improved wildlife habitat or flood control, every greenway property has its own unique features to contribute to the City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project.
