A short and informative presentation and video clips of the severe drainage issues that are occurring in our parks. Increasing the amount of impervious and semi-impervious spaces (i.e. cement, astro-turf…) while decreasing plantings continues to create issues and damage to our parks and trees. There are concerns that environmental assessments and oversight are not being conducted, in the name of “maintenance” projects. These assessments would help ensure that these drainage issues are being addressed properly.
