What's Up —Or In this Case, Down— with the Municipal Park Pond?
Patch readers noticed the Municipal Park pond is strangely low. Here's why.
Walking or biking through the Rochester Municipal park these days you might notice the pond seems to be running on empty.
There's a reason for that.
According to city manager, Jaymes Vettraino, the pond was drawn down to repair a pipe that connects it to the Paint Creek.
"The connecting pipe had developed a break and was off-set, which limited the water flow between the creek and the pond," Vettraino said.
All's well that ends well
The pipe was repaired on Oct. 12 with a slip-liner pipe but now needs about seven days to set.
The City will refill the pond Oct. 19- 22.
