Pipe system should improve Westminster park drainage

Pipes snaking across the Westminster playground should improve drainage for the tot lot and ball fields, Westminster city officials hope.

Wood chips placed on the tot lot "created a well," said Carol Donovan, city recreation director. Water also puddled on the ball fields.

To alleviate the problem, the city awarded a $22,480 contract to Bosley Inc. to install a drainage line that will connect with the storm drain system at the end of Broadway.

Mrs. Donovan said that when the main line is installed, city government workers are scheduled to lay connecting lines to improve drainage.
