[Greenbelt Park]Greenbelt Park's streams and wetlands vividly demonstrate that what goes on outside the boundary of a park can have a profound effect on the park itself. Streambeds within the park are deeply scoured and eroded. The water that courses through them is laden with silt, and carries nutrients, oil, and other pollutants. Why? The acres of pavement around the park absorb no water; fertilizers and lubricants know no boundaries.
