The Earth is important.

The best Poem about Earth Day Perspective I have ever read is here at Associated Content by It’s All Good. It says “Symbols Mean a Lot You Know; The Big House and SUV Must Go” that says it all, eh?

I can check with some of our water staff here in the Dallas office, but would hope that sustainable storm water practices are being incorporated in remediation plans.

Traditionally, capping of contaminated properties with impervious materials (e.g., landfill caps, parking lots, buildings, etc) was thought to be a solution in preventing exposure to the contaminated materials and minimizing water infiltration on the contained contamination. While impervious capping accomplishes these goals, it also creates an additional environmental issue which must now be addressed, namely site specific sustainable stormwater management practices.

I was wondering if this is a big issue with anyone and whether EPA’s recent focus on storm water issues takes these factors into account. I would especially be interested in any folks with experiences relating to storm water runoff issues created by capping contaminated sites.

We’ve corrected the code, so now his full name “Rob Lawrence” should appear under the picture.

This is a wonderful idea! Floating islands would be something to seriously consider. You could even use them to harnass both wind and water energy. Although it would be probably be expensive initially, the benefits would far outweigh the disadvantages and prove to be a good idea in the long run.

Good job, Neil!

The islands would also make good ocean disaster response centers, where ocean disasters such as oil spills from tankers and other disasters can be contained quickly.

Is Lawrence his first name or his last name? It isn’t provided.
