Watersheds of Potential

March 4, 2013

A flat plain, heavy rainfall (though not in the last several years)—the result a city networked with 2,692 miles of drainage ditches, channels, and bayous.  1,402 miles of this system are manmade (pink).  The remaining 1,290 miles are part of the natural drainage system (blue).  If we re-conceived this system as a watershed of potential, as the Bayou Greenway Initiative is doing, we could have a completely new type of networked city.
