RESTORING WATERWAYS


When protecting natural environments people live in, we must remove contamination from waterways and their natural corridors. These rivers, lakes and streams are the lifeblood of communities especially in developing countries. Polluters of these waterways are point source contamination such as industrial / manufacturing facilities and nonpoint source stormwater runoff from built areas. Pollutants include oil and grease from roads, fertilizers from farms and lawns, and contamination from industrial / commercial areas.

To remove pollution from waterways, Geo-Life designs systems that use filtration for industrial pollutants and retention pond systems with biological planting schemes, such as Bio-Swales and Open Retention Ponds for organic pollution. These systems are designed to remove pollution before it flows to lakes, streams, rivers and eventually the oceans. These systems are not expensive and can be a part of a natural corridor through communities that provide drinking water for people, a place for wildlife to live and fresh air for everyone. Vegetation along these restored waterways is a great way to remove pollution from the waterway and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
