Robertson Property

ense development throughout Atlanta overshadows the existence of some of the city's long forgotten natural places. However, the acquisition of almost seven undeveloped acres and 1,096 feet of the South River stream bank makes the Robertson property one of those hidden gems. Development impacts, such as stormwater runoff in the form of sedimentation and other pollutants from construction sites, are major contributors of "nonpoint source" pollution. Nonpoint source pollution stems from thousands of indirect sources and empties into rivers and streams during periods of rainfall. The City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project aims to improve water quality conditions throughout the city and reduce the amount of nonpoint source pollution in Atlanta's watersheds.
