We raised the low section where the puddles accumulated all summer and lowered the necessary section enough to create the right pitch for the water to flow downhill towards the parking lot. The water was then directed off the road towards the sound into an existing drain (patch of woods) before it reaches the parking lot.This was done in the fall and we left it that way to test the work. It worked perfectly.The only issue was the lowered section was basically sand and did not hold up well, as we expected. Because the pitch is so slight we had to lower the section more to be able to add a suitable road material. The lowering was made more difficult in some ways because the ground was frozen. The pictures show some of the puddles you remember driving through all summer and the work done to repair the issue.
|MMGC's only water hazard?|
|frozen chunks of road surface|
|finished product with flow from meltdown yesterday|
|you can see the shadows of the puddle and the drain is full on the right of the picture but the water slowly flows out|
