Improving the Future Health of City Park Lake

Salisbury Parks and Recreation and Public Services 0 233

Recognized as a “Tree City USA” locality for more than 30 years, the City of Salisbury is dedicated to the health, vitality and well-being of our city trees. Now that we are able to move forward with the City Park Lake project, we have to think about the best uses of the park as a whole and the long-term effects of the landscaped areas around it. 

Scoop The Poop

Stormwater 0 190

Pets give us unconditional love, but their waste certainly does not. Contrary to some thinking, pet feces is not a fertilizer for soil or plants, and quite the opposite of good intentions can occur. Pet “poop” can affect stormwater quality by running off into storm drains and in to streams, creating potential algae blooms and affecting water toxicity.
