GREEN RIDGE GLADE RESERVOIR, LOVELAND, COLORADO

Beginning in 1887, the City of Loveland diverted all of its municipal water supply directly from the Big Thompson River. The City built a pipeline into the water treatment plant at Chasteen’s Grove that provided high quality water for many decades. Following the 1976 flood in the Big Thompson Canyon, when Loveland’s population was about 25,000, citizens supported additional protection for the City’s water supply. From this concern, Green Ridge Glade Reservoir was built in the valley above the water treatment plant. Since completion, the reservoir has provided about 600 acre-feet of stored water to use in emergency situations. With the current population of over 50,000 people, the reservoir will provide water for about six days during the hottest part of the summer, if water use is not curtailed.

PIETER JANSZOON SAENREDAM PROJECT, by LUCIEN DEN AREND, BARENDRECHT, HOLLAND

Via St. Ives Net

The municipality of Barendrecht, near Rotterdam in Holland, commissioned Lucien den Arend to make a landscape design for a new housing project called Molenvliet. Den Arend proposed to make use of a planned water reservoir. He reshaped it into a large rectangle – eighty by fifty meters. On one end he projected a thirty by thirty meter island – ten meters away from the three adjacent shores. On the island he planted a grid of sixteen by sixteen rows of willow trees. These are pollarded every three years.
