NOTICE: Line Break at Jesse Owens Park

I've heard from Parks and Rec's Glenna Overstreet that we had a major reclaimed water mainline break at Jesse Owens Park overnight near softball fields #5 & 6. Although it appears the water ran most of the night, there was no runoff toward Sarnoff and it did not leave the property. The reclaimed line has been turned off for now. These fields will likely not be playable this evening. Parks personnel will be contacting league officials and will also assess the fields tomorrow morning to see if conditions have improved.

They will not be able to work on repairs until Monday. The shut off affects the entire park, but only the reclaimed irrigation. All potable water to restrooms and drinking fountains is still on.
