Cooperative Weather Needed to Repair Pond Washout

Posted By News On August 11, 2010 @ 6:21 am In Today’s Local News | Comments Disabled

Heavy rains the past two days have likely further delayed repairs to a flood release pipe on a pond on the southwest side of Pella. Rains on June 12th, coupled with a failed drainage pipe, caused a large sinkhole to form on the east side of a small pond near the Gene Van Wyk Soccer Complex. Pella Public Works Director Denny Buyert says a replacement pipe has been received, but it will likely take two weeks of dry weather before his department can make the necessary repairs. A temporary drainage ditch is currently releasing excess water from the pond.
