Project Details

The Town has hired Tetra Tech Inc. to prepare preliminary engineering concept designs for a water capture facility in Holbrook-Palmer Park.  The project would include a diversion structure to re-direct all dry-weather urban runoff and the first flush of wet-weather runoff from the Atherton Channel through a pre-treatment device to remove trash, debris, and sediment before conveying the water into a buried multi-chambered storage/infiltration facility with a targeted storage capacity of eight (8) to ten (10) acre-feet.

The Park & Recreation Committee meets this Wednesday, March 7 at 6:30PM in the Pavilion at the Park. - AGENDA  

This meeting will begin with a presentation about the water capture facility project in Holbrook-Palmer Park including costs, schedule, impacts, and activities. Construction on the project is expected to start July 2019 and last about 14 months. While we anticipate minimal impact to the surrounding neighborhoods, this project, coupled with construction from the Civic Center Project will generate noise, dust, construction traffic and temporary road closures that will affect our closest neighbors, you!
