The situation of the Saavedra Park lake continues to generate concern among residents and regular visitors to one of the main green lungs of the Urban Center of the City. As has been published for two months, the water mirror in that emblematic space “is drying up”, so they demand that the authorities take action on the matter urgently.
Ezequiel Auspitz Conti, lives a couple of blocks from the Park and told EL DIA a striking “ecological” proposal that, according to him, could save the lake. “The downspout is worrisome and goes beyond a drought or a climatic issue. Although cleaning tasks were done, there is also a human responsibility to dump garbage,” he describes about the critical state of the water.
“There are some alternatives to maintain the water level and above all, its temperature, which is key to sustaining the ecosystem that coexists in this space,” he enthused.
MORE VEGETATION AND LESS NETWORK WATER
One of the ideas that was raised among neighbors is that this system is repeated, a lotus plantation system that is currently in “lagoon” towards the main lagoon in order to naturally contain the water level without injecting mains water “.
They have put in the other water space -the smallest- of the American lotus Park (an aquatic plant, with yellow flowers) that contain large leaves, which allows the temperature to remain lower and helps other species that today in turn they are affected by the tap water that is being used to try to maintain the water level artificially “, described Auspitz Conti.
Another benefit of lotus is that it could maintain stability and prevent algae growth. “Now, if people keep throwing plastic bags and bottles, there will be no solution without awareness of human behavior,” he warns.
“They are functional to this ecosystem and above all another benefit they provide is to maintain humidity and delay the evaporation process of water,” he lists at the time of benefits.
