Contemporary Arts Center Property
This greenway acquisition is one of the first on Intrenchment
Creek. It is a large acquisition of an entire undeveloped parcel.
It also protects a wide floodplain area. A wide, protected, and
undeveloped floodplain along streambanks is important for the protection
of water quality. Protection of the floodplain helps to slow flow
of storm water and the velocity of flow in the creek. It gives the
water a place to infiltrate into the ground, thus helping to prevent
floodoing and bank erosion. Sediments and pollution that are carried
from storm water runoff will also be filtered and allowed to settle
out of the storm water before entering the stream.
