Details:

WHAT
The Sweetwater Wetlands Park was a joint venture by GRU and the City of Gainesville to improve water quality from Sweetwater Branch before it discharges onto Paynes Prairie. Debbie Segal will describe how the constructed treatment wetlands operate using native wetland plants to remove nutrients and pollutants from the water.

Thanks to the new Sweetwater Wetlands Park, cleaner water is now recharging our drinking water aquifer, our community has a new and exciting opportunity for passive outdoor recreation, students of all ages have a hands-on environmental learning center, aquatic and wetland-dependent wildlife are prospering, and out-of-town visitors are contributing to Gainesville’s growing ecotourism economy.

About our speaker:
Debbie Segal is an environmental scientist who has worked in the field of wetlands ecology, soil science, and environmental permitting for over 25 years. While working with Wetland Solutions, Inc., Debbie helped design and permit the Paynes Prairie Sweetwater Wetlands Park. She is a volunteer for the Alachua Audubon Society and the Florida Springs Institute where she advocates for environmental protection.
