I get so much out of these new Low Impact Developments the City has recently developed (since when can I say I get so much out of any other stormwater infrastructure system!). Not only are they attractive greenspaces within the built environment, but they are a low GHG, highly functional, and cost effective at treating stormwater. Yes this oversized rain garden even removes heavy metals, fertilizers, and petrochemicals from the stormwater. I’m proud the City is applying these as best practices, a practice that will help us become much more resilient in the face of increasing rain events in the future!
The rising average temperatures in NW Ontario this summer led to some droughts early in the growing season. I was looking forward to a great gardening year but it was very hard to get the veggies to take root and fruit trees to blossom without rain for weeks in May. Changes to weather patterns go with climate change and concern me. We need to do what we can to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and keep the climate stable if drought/flood is the alternative, or it will be tough to adapt.
