Project Title & Description
FY2014 Urban Waters Small Grants
The Bayou Land RC&D will evaluate the impact of Green Infrastructure on mosquito breeding and surface water quality in the Pontchartrain Park and Gentilly Woods neighborhood to determine the safety and reliability of green infrastructure. The team will work with residents to track changes to water flow and flooding in their neighborhood, and residents will be given training and resources to qualitatively track rainfall and flood events. Information gathered can be used to support neighborhood and local level green infrastructure projects.
