Tower Park – Shelter 3 Area (across from VA Hospital)
You may have seen improvements to the basketball courts as well as the new shelter in Tower Park. The City of Ft. Thomas intends to complete this area by late spring. A volleyball court, additional parking, and modified play area will be great additions/upgrades to our park system.
Tower Park – Ballfield
Improvements have been taking place at the Tower Park Ball Field. We intend to have the field ready for spring, with additional improvements in the year(s) to come.
Sanitation District No. 1 will be replacing a portion of the sanitary sewer on Waterworks Road. A portion of the road will be closed from September 2 to December 1, 2020. The road will be barricaded at night, allowing access only for the local resident at 262 Waterworks Rd, and Emergency Personnel.
To help alleviate flooding and overflows of storm and sanitary sewer during and after heavy rainfall in the area around Waterworks Road, SD1 is planning a project to replace some existing storm and sanitary sewer pipes with new, larger pipes.
In order to finalize the design for the new sewer system, SD1 will be performing some geotechnical data collection work. This involves drilling into the ground to obtain samples of the soil and rock beneath the surface. The investigation may also require contractors to dig holes on or around private property.
This work will begin the week of September 16th and should be completed within two weeks. Residents may see and hear construction activity during normal business hours, and traffic along Waterworks Road may be reduced to one lane. SD1 and our contractors will make every effort to be as minimally disruptive to residents and motorists as possible. Any property disturbed as a result of this work will be restored to satisfactory conditions.
Questions about this project can be directed to Spencer Stork by calling SD1’s main line at 859-578-7450 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and referencing project number C705-ENG-047-01.
You can help protect public health, property and the environment by following some of these tips from SD1:
Sweep grass clippings, leaves and other debris off the street and away from storm drains. Dispose of all waste properly in trash receptacles or recycling bins.
Use fertilizers and pesticides sparingly on your yard and landscaping.
Never dump, pour or wash oil, chemicals, paint, yard debris, trash or other substances down a storm drain.
Rake leaves and other debris from your yard and place them in plastic bags or trash bins for disposal.
During the winter months or in the event of a late snowfall, try to shovel ice and snow away from storm drains to maintain a clear opening.For more helpful tips and information about how to prepare for heavy precipitation, visit www.sd1.org/customerservice/raineventpreparation
