Urban water management in Bogotá, Colombia

Vegetación.JPG thumb Wetland of Córdoba In 1950, there were an estimated 50,000 acres (20,234 ha) of wetlands connected to the Bogotá River and by 2009, there was less than 2,500 acres (1,000 ha) remaining. Much of the wetlands have been degraded by poor water quality. In response to the degradation of the wetlands, a strong environmental movement has emerged in Bogotá that actively promotes the protection and expansion of wetland areas. In 2006, the Bogotá district government passed a comprehensive wetlands management policy where the district government, EAAB, and CAR work together to protect rivers and wetlands utilizing new regulations and environmental management programs. The basin plan for the Río Bogotá (POMCA) established water quality standards for the river basin until the year 2020, and designates water uses through river segments and sets ambient water quality criteria of approximately 25 pollutants in order to meet the designated uses. Flooding and river restoration Prior to 1950, the Bogotá River meandered through the middle of the basin with wide riparian areas, extensive flood plains, and thriving ecosystmes such as the La Conejera, Juan Amarillo, and Jaboque wetlands. Rapid urbanization has resulted in the channelization of the river, destruction of wetlands and settlements along the river making the river increasingly prone to flooding. In response, CAR has incorporated a flood works program to widen and protect riparian zones, restore the natural meander of the river, and hydraulically connect the river to its flood plains. In one particular component of a World Bank loan (see Multi-stakeholder assistance below) to CAR, EAAB, and the District Government; the Flood Control and Environmental Works project finances a comprehensive river recuperation program that incorporates best practice in urban river restoration. This component consists of improving flood control from an existing 10-25-year return period to a 100-year period, restoring part of the river flood plain, creating and enhancing wetlands and multifunctional parks, and complementing wastewater infrastructure with existing wastewater treatment when possible.

led to the unbalanced populations of carp and Canada Geese (Canada Goose). These are water quality and quantity based. Poor water clarity is a result of extremely high nutrient and sediment levels derived from sewage and urban runoff. Rapid sediment accumulation is the result of unmanaged land use patterns in the watersheds, and the regulated water level in Lake Ontario have dramatically altered the flooding pattern. Project Paradise is one of the largest wetland rehabilitation projects in North America. South St Burger Co Recently the company has opened a chain of stores called South St. Burger Co. that makes the same fries as New York Fries and also sells hamburgers and salads. South St. Burger Co. has nine locations in the Greater Toronto Area, including four in Toronto and one each in Mississauga, Burlington (Burlington, Ontario), Aurora (Aurora, Ontario), Markham (Markham, Ontario) and Newmarket (Newmarket, Ontario). Other locations include Barrie and Calgary. Another store in the GTA will open soon in Ajax (Ajax, Ontario). The name South St. Burger Co. comes from the name South Street Seaport, in New York City where the brothers founded the original New York Fries. Spencer Smith Park at Burlington (Burlington, Ontario) is a prime example of the evolution of mixed-use development and city planning in the Greater Toronto Area. In 2006, the park became a symbol of the ongoing effort to reclaim the Lake Ontario shoreline after the latest phase of redevelopment featured the opening of Spencer's (Spencer's (restaurant)), an upscale restaurant on grounds once occupied by the Mohawk (Mohawk nation) Canoe Club (Burloak Canoe Club). alias origin Burlington, Ontario, Canada genre Emo Post-hardcore Screamo Pop punk The area is served by Mississauga Transit, Oakville Transit and commuter bus service via GO Transit. On the Milton train line (Milton line), the Erindale (Erindale GO Station) and Streetsville (Streetsville GO Station) GO Stations, and to a lesser extent the Meadowvale GO Station, are used by Erin Mills residents for commuting into Toronto. Also, the Clarkson GO Station, located to the south on the Lakeshore West line is also used for the same purpose, although some on this line commute westward to Oakville (Oakville, Ontario), Burlington (Burlington, Ontario) and Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario). *'''delete''' useless and introduces potential for serious browser incompatibility. Note, there is an alternative, inote (Template talk:inote) which does the same thing in a different way, just leaving an HTML comment, and which is used for invisible references in text. Mozzerati (User:Mozzerati) ::Although the local effect is similar, template:inote has a completely different function. The use of Template:Hide (or Template:Canadian City Disable Field True) is to conditionally suppress some part of the output of a template. For example, Template:Canadian City has a parameter ''Motto'' which usually appears following a label (''Motto:''), see for example Calgary, Alberta. For cities lacking a motto, the label can be suppressed by adding a parameter ''Disable Motto Link'' (with the value True), see for example Burlington, Ontario. The "normal" ouput (without the suppression parameter specified) is of the form weird junk with curly braces Motto: (so the div makes the weird junk invisible, but note the second close div in this case is unmatched). With the suppression parameter set to true, the "weird junk with curly braces" turns out to be an invocation of a template like Template:Hide which expands into another matching the first close div. This makes the initial div apply to the ''Motto:'' label, making it invisible. One advantage of this approach is that if there's ever if-then-else syntax added to templates, the invoking template can be fixed without requiring any changes to any of its references. HTML comments do not nest, so there's no way using HTML comments to do precisely the same thing. This is an extremely clever workaround to a limitation of the existing implementation of templates. We could perhaps argue this is too clever, but I'm not aware of any policy prohibiting (nor even discouraging) excessive cleverness in templates. -- Rick Block (user:Rick Block) (talk (user talk:Rick Block)) 16:42, August 21, 2005 (UTC) :::Neat.

Burning of Newark In late 1813, Major General Francis de Rottenburg, the British Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, had been alarmed by defeats in the west (the Battle of Lake Erie and the Battle of the Thames) and American concentrations to the east, and on 9 October he ordered the troops on the Niagara peninsula to retreat hastily to Burlington Heights (Burlington, Ontario) at the western end of Lake Ontario. He intended to abandon even this position and concentrate his forces at Kingston (Kingston, Ontario) but during the first week in December, de Rottenburg was replaced by the more forceful Lieutenant General Gordon Drummond who was aware that the American attack on Montreal had been defeated, leaving the American Army stranded in poorly-supplied winter quarters in Upper New York State. Drummond immediately cancelled de Rottenburg's plans for further retreat, and ordered the units at Burlington Heights to advance instead.
