I work in the field of water resources, and we have installed many RGs. Now we are looking to see if there are studies out there to determine what level of carbon sequestration they provide. I look forward o hearing from you.

I realize this articles main focus was on water quality however, a quick mention of the dangers of carbon monoxide concentrations to humans while enjoying the lakes would have been a great small plug for air quality and children’s environmental health. In Arizona we’ve had needless deaths caused by carbon monoxide concentrations.

However, I wish some mention would have been made dangers of Carbon Monoxide at lakes. Realizing this article focused on water quality issues here in Arizona we’ve experienced several losses of children at lakes due to Carbon Monoxide concentrations.

But these would not only be great at collecting stormwater, they would make the whole area nicer and greener and add to carbon sequestration capabilities. And if they could be done using wholly native plants would be that much better. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
