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.
