On the evening of October 24, 2016, the Commissioner of the Department of Watershed Management (DWM), Kishia Powell, and staff did an excellent job of explaining how DWM is working to eliminate wet weather sewer overflows in and near Memorial Park and within the Peachtree Creek Sewer Basin. The DWM team also answered questions and listened to the concerns and perspectives from neighbors. AMPC is grateful to the DWM and the members of the Memorial Park Technical Advisory Group for their ongoing work to tackle the issues in our park and the Peachtree Creek Sewer Basin.

Meetings of the Memorial Park Technical Advisory Group with the DWM are ongoing as the DWM listens to and finalizes its modeling and recommendations to resolve the watershed issues in the Park and along the Peachtree Creek Sewer Basin corridor. A follow-up Open House will be scheduled in the Spring/early Summer of 2017 to provide citizens with an update to the October 24, 2016 Open House. Once a date and time are set, an invitation will be sent to AMPC’s constituents and an invitation will be extended to each of the bordering neighborhoods to share with their respective neighbors.
