  A 55 gal Rain Barrel has been delivered to the Rec Center. It still needs to be installed. Maintenance staff is aware of concern for plants to be watered and will try to get youth to participate.

Doesn't the rec center have a water spigot? At least the use of the janitorial sink you can hook a few hoses to. Seriously. it is part of Parks and Rec at least they can supply the water

We usually drop the buckets off on the sidewalk and then drive around, park at the rec center and walk down to the water.

AND... there is water in the pool, the lifeguard chairs are up and the ladders are in place.  Won't be long now!

The flowers we planted at the base of the hill at Glenwood need water badly.  Anybody can stop by with a bucket or two would be greatly appreciated!

Actually after a month of heavy rains and snow melt, along with the ton of brush and trees they just threw down there along the sidewalk where the water is, the amount of standing water isn't as bad as it could be and is actually going away as the saturated ground begins to dry out.  There are areas of Big Run Park that still have standing water.  Goodale had ponding last week as well, giving their dog walkers some problems.    Caleb and I were down there on Sunday afternoon and it seems to be localized along the sidewalk; the area where the picnic tables used to be along the base of the hill is fine.  It was dry down there last spring ... supposedly they had installed drains 5 or 6 years ago to take care of the issue, but with all the trash and debris they dumped down there when they had to clear a way to take out those dumps last fall, everything's probably plugged up.  But you know, a small pond along the sidewalk, with an appropriate rail which is needed there anyway, might be really pretty and nice.   We could have a picnic area and a small pond area with water plants and ducks.   I also wonder how much of the water issue is caused by the church parking lot directly to the east ... it does not appear they have any drains in the parking lot to take care of water run off.

Looks like the drainage problem at Gkenwood is not taken care of... It is a small lake at the bottom of the hill. There is no way we can get them to clean that up with the marsh there, maybe we can grow cranberries there.... LOL

But something needs to be done with the brush and saplings before the leaves start to appear and it is totally obstructed again this summer
