The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary Reconnection Project
The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary has been one of the Cities most ecologically important parks for nearly a century. Unfortunately, due to its age, some of the hydraulic structures that control the water level in the lagoon have passed their useful life and are putting the park’s lagoon at risk. In addition, as part of the Bend in the Bow review process, the concept of reconnecting the lagoon to the river was suggested to improve water quality, reduce water level fluctuations in the lagoon as well as improve fish habitat. The City has undertaken a detailed analysis of the options and is proposing a project to ensure the Park can remain an ecological hot spot through the next century as well. The City Project Manager will discuss the sites history, how it has changed over the years, its current ecologic importance, the proposed design, and how the design managed the existing park and rivers ecology, hydrology, and river morphology.
Presenter: Jonathan Slaney, he is a planning engineer with the City’s Watershed Planning team.
