Tate Property
T
his greenway property is located in southwest Atlanta, near several other greenway properties. It is entirely comprised of floodplain land. This acquisition is significant because, since this property is located on a slightly larger lot, 2.22 acres are protected through this acquisition. This is a significant acquisition in a highly urbanized area. Since the property is located in a densely developed area, a large percentage of adjacent land is covered by impervious surfaces. Impervious surfaces include: roads, rooftops, driveways, and other areas where water is unable to infiltrate the ground. The acquisition and protection of a wide and undeveloped stream bank and floodplain on this property will help slow and filter the rush of storm water from these adjacent impervious surfaces. By filtering the water and slowing the flow, less pollutants and sediment will enter the creek. This will result in improving the water quality of South Utoy Creek.
