New Project Restores and Beautifies Grassy Waters Watershed

 

May 29, 2013

(West Palm Beach, FL) – Like the water filter in your fridge, the grasses and plants in the City’s Grassy Waters Preserve filter out pollutants from our water supply. In fact, the natural plant life is critical to maintaining the high quality of the water in the City of West Palm Beach.

Maintaining the quality and quantity of those plants is essential, and the reason volunteers gave up part of their weekend to plant new grasses and trees along the City’s “M” Canal.

The new plants and grasses will not only create habitats for native wildlife, but also improve the water quality. In addition, the plants will help reduce flooding.

For more information on the project, you can contact Cindy Bush @ 561-670-5729.
