Vodopich Property
T
he Vodopich property acquisition will protect approximately 190 feet of Peachtree Creek. This acquisition is located in a residential area of northwest Atlanta, near several other protected greenway properties located on Peachtree Creek. This acquisition of more than an acre for preservation in this densely developed area of the City of Atlanta, combined with nearby acquisitions, will help preserve the water quality of Peachtree Creek. A vegetated stream buffer will help improve water quality for several reasons. As water flows from adjacent impervious surfaces, a vegetated buffer will help slow the rush of water. This in turn will allow sediments and pollutants to settle out of storm water before entering the creek. Additionally, a slower flow of storm water will help prevent the stream banks from washing away and collapsing. All these factors combined will result in improved water quality for Peachtree Creek. Every property owner who participates in the Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Program can feel good about making a difference for both their neighborhood creek and ultimately the Chattahoochee and South Rivers.
