Greenway Acquisition Project will protect properties from being
developed near rivers and streams, which will reduce the amount
of impervious surface (such as concrete or asphalt) in the watershed.
Located in a residential area on Sandringham Drive, near Campbellton
Road in southwest Atlanta, this Priority 1 status property will
protect South Utoy Creek from pollutants and sediments that wash
into the creek from these impervious surfaces. A connected series
of greenway properties with a 100-foot wide buffer on the stream
also ensures the biological integrity of plant and animal species
within the greenway corridor along South Utoy Creek. Every property
acquired by the City of Atlanta is a meaningful contribution to
the protection of water resources the community.
