Design guidelines to the Acari river watershed

ReachKey characteristics and current issuesDesign Guidelines
Residential zone with regular and irregular occupations. Few flooded areas due to its topography. Natural and clean waterways located at Protection Areas. Pedra Branca's Estadual Park (PBEP) as its main public recreational space. Connection of the fluvial park with the PBEP to guarantee the water quality and enhance biodiversity. Restoration of riparian vegetation along the green corridor. Squares used as multifunctional detention basins. Restoration of bridges for the river contemplation; insertion of bicycle paths to improve local mobility and leisure. 
Institutional and military zone. Few flooded areas due to the proportion of available green spaces. Diffuse pollution of waterways. Deodoro's Radical Park is the main public space. Blue-green corridor along the riverbanks, and phytoremediation plants to control pollutant loads. Interconnect leisure opportunities and attract a larger contingent of visitors to Deodoro's Radical Park through its connection with the proposed fluvial park. 
Residential zone with regular and irregular occupations. Affected by floods that exceed 1 meter. Pollution caused by irregular sewage disposal. Madureira Park is the main open space. Integration of the Madureira Park with the fluvial park, improving its storage opportunities. Rehabilitation of vegetation. Definition of multiple activities on the secondary channel. Local squares as detention basins. Encourage workshops and environmental education classes. 
Residential and industrial zone, mostly composed of irregular occupations. Constantly affected by floods that exceed 2 meters. High level of pollution caused by the irregular sewage discharge. Local squares and Ponto Frio's deposit is the main open space. Provide recreational spaces in the secondary channel. Use of existing squares to accommodate stormwater. Rehabilitation of the marginal vegetation along the green corridor. Ponto Frio's deposit as a floodable park. Educational signs to inform about the ecosystem services.
