City Awarded Environment Impact Bond

The city of Atlanta recently became the first municipality in the country to be awarded a publicly-offered Environmental Impact Bond (EIB) for green infrastructure projects. The bond will help support eight infrastructure projects within the area. These eight projects were developed to help improve the waste and stormwater management and reduce the strain on the current infrastructure and sewer system. An EIB is an innovative financing tool that uses a Pay for Success (PFS) approach to provide up-front capital for environmental programs, either to pilot a new approach whose performance is viewed as uncertain or to scale up a solution that has been tested on a small scale. In its most basic form, private investors participating in a PFS model

Atlanta Inspects Pipelines to Inhibit Tree Roots in Sewer System

The city of Atlanta has been dealing with tree roots, as have other cities within the area. Roots can build up inside the sewer system and cause clogs and problematic backups. These clogs can interfere with the daily use of your fixtures. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent this nuisance. Take note of any trees growing within 30 feet of your main sewer line and get a professional inspection every few years. Additionally, leave at least 10 feet between any new trees and shrubs planted near your home’s mainline. Trees are relatively low maintenance as their requirements are few- soil, water, sunlight. They provide an abundance of benefits which include purifying the air, lowering your energy bills with their shade,

Atlanta’s Memorial Park and Flooding Prevention

Flooding and sewer overflows have been an ongoing problem for Atlanta’s Memorial Park for decades. City watershed management officials are now planning to spend about $400,000 over the next three to nine months to raise five manholes on a sewer line, through the park, by approximately 2 feet in order to keep water from flowing into the sewer line and causing further damage.  Additionally, plans will be expedited on more than $30 million in other repairs, including the rehabilitation of a 90-inch pipe installed in 1910 that runs beneath the park. Recently, flooding on Peachtree Creek sent sewage flowing into the playground and other areas of Atlanta’s Memorial Park located in Buckhead, leaving nearby residents in a state of concern.
