Proctor Creek Deal Signed

The City of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed signed an agreement yesterday with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers authorizing a three-year environmental feasibility study of the Proctor Creek watershed.

Mayor Reed was joined by Brigadier General C. David Turner, Commander of the South Atlantic Division of the Corps of Engineers, for the bill signing in the Mayor’s Ceremonial Office at City Hall.

The legislation authorizes $1.5 million in city funds for the study, which will be matched by an additional $1.5 million in Corps of Engineers funds.

The study will survey the water quality, overall environmental quality and flood-damage risk reduction of the watershed and result in the best-suited ecosystem restoration projects for Proctor Creek.

In total, the City will restore nine miles of natural waterway to reduce flooding, create trails for recreation and spur economic development.
