Next Saturday, join Park Pride on a tour highlighting the green infrastructure of the McDaniel Branch stormwater project. Designed to mitigate the impacts of stormwater runoff in Atlanta’s in-town neighborhoods, the constructed wetlands central to this project mimic natural systems for managing stormwater.
An added benefit of this project has been the re-visioning of the adjacent Arthur Langford Park!
The tour is going to be PACKED full of information:
Kevin Burke, Senior Landscape Architect at Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. will unpack the Arthur Langford Park renovation, discussing the park’s background and moving into the park design.
Susan Rutherford and Seham Abdulahad of City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management will walk us through the background of the McDaniel Branch restoration project and how it’s worked to mitigate the area’s stormwater runoff.
Andrew Walker, also of the Department of Watershed Management, will explore the technical intricacies of the stream’s and pond’s response to the restoration.
LOTS of expertise on the subject matter – an opportunity you will not want to miss!
