31 Mar Atlanta’s Memorial Park and Flooding Prevention
Flooding and sewer overflows have been an ongoing problem for Atlanta’s Memorial Park for decades. City watershed management officials are now planning to spend about $400,000 over the next three to nine months to raise five manholes on a sewer line, through the park, by approximately 2 feet in order to keep water from flowing into the sewer line and causing further damage. Additionally, plans will be expedited on more than $30 million in other repairs, including the rehabilitation of a 90-inch pipe installed in 1910 that runs beneath the park. Recently, flooding on Peachtree Creek sent sewage flowing into the playground and other areas of Atlanta’s Memorial Park located in Buckhead, leaving nearby residents in a state of concern. Alternative solutions to contain excess water are being explored, including the practicality of building a relief tunnel to aid in drainage. This month, the city approved a 1 cent sales tax specifically designated for the improvement of water and sewer infrastructures.
