This greenway acquisition along North Utoy Creek continues
to build a protected greenway corridor along this creek. The Atlanta
Greenway Acquisition Project has been very successful in this area
of Atlanta, which will result in the preservation of connected properties.
This will improve and protect water quality along both North and
South Utoy Creeks. This acquisition is also partially located in
the floodplain. Protection of the floodplain helps prevent flooding
downstream. It also helps to filter sediment and pollutants from
flowing into the stream. By slowing the flow of water, these items
are allowed to settle out of stormwater before entering the creek.
This acquisition is another example of how multiple small property
owner participation in the Atlanta Greenway Acquisition project
is resulting in the success of the project.
