Infrastructure Improvements in Park and Pool


Broadmoor volunteers worked with a contractor to repair the sinkholes caused by a storm drain pipe running across the park. Just below the pool area several holes opened in the last year during heavy rains.

The last 14’ of the pipes were completely blocked, which was the major cause of all the back-up. They re-cemented around the all the pipe seams on the outside and mortared on the inside to prevent water from catching in the joins and undercutting.

The contractor will be back in a couple weeks to check for settling of dirt and will top off with dirt if needed. He is also going to give us an estimate on repairing the area up by the street where the manhole cover is damaged and the sidewalk is heaving.

A fence contractor will be making improvements around the pool before the Memorial Day weekend pool opening. If you have not seen the beautiful new pool deck, please take a stroll through the park and take a look.
