Rock Creek Park Superintendent on Sewer Rehabilitation

On July 13, 2013, Tara Morrison commented in the Northwest Current Newspaper on the planned rehabilitation of the sewer in our neighborhood parks:

“…Early in our discussions, it appeared that relining the existing pipes would be the least environmentally harmful approach. However, as planning progressed, it became clear that this approach would disturb up to 35 acres of parkland and remove between 650 and 950 trees greater than 17 inches in diameter in Glover Archbold Park. In Soapstone Valley Park, up to five acres of parkland would be disturbed and up to 160 trees of greater than 17-inch diameter would be removed. These numbers do not include the thousands of trees less than 17 inches in diameter that would be affected by the construction…”
