T
he City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project attempts to improve water quality through the purchase of 100-foot wide conservation easements along the banks of metropolitan Atlanta's rivers and streams. Conservation easement acquisitions such as the Glenn Property in northwest Atlanta will protect Peachtree Creek from further degradation from pollutants and sediments that wash into the creek from roads, parking lots, construction sites, homes, and businesses. Termed "nonpoint source pollution" this type of pollution enters the watershed from numerous places along the stream. As Atlanta continues to expand, nonpoint source pollution is the principal cause for our water quality concerns. Although we are all a part of the problem, the Greenway Acquisition Project gives everyone the opportunity to be involved in the water quality solution.
