Over the past several years, asphalt pathways in a few
parks have been deteriorating due to pooling water from irrigation and
precipitation runoff. Several areas within SunRidge Park have been identified
as having poor drainage, subsequent ground saturation and the beginning stages
of pathway erosion. Pooling water has contributed to icy conditions in the
winter and algal growth in the summer. Parks is addressing the drainage issues
now, before the problem escalates and requires total pathway replacement.
Weeping tile drainage systems will be installed along
the edges of the pathway in areas where drainage issues have been identified.
Surface water collected in the system will be conveyed and expelled via pop up
emitters in shrub and tree beds downhill from drainage sites. Once the drainage
system is in place, the pathways and turf affected will be repaired.
