Deep Eddy Pool to lose trees

Monday, June 1, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

In the wake of the Memorial Day floods, the city’s Parks and Recreation Department has completed an assessment of the damage inflicted on Deep Eddy Pool. That assessment found that flash flooding and wind caused “major tree damage.” Afflicted tress included two large cottonwoods, which will be removed immediately. In a press release, the Parks and Recreation Department and Urban Forestry staff wrote that they are “deeply saddened by the loss of these two iconic trees, and the impact to the pool grounds and urban forest by the storms.” The statement goes on: “Residents visiting Deep Eddy will see a noticeable difference in the landscape due to the results of the flooding and high winds which downed trees throughout the park and pool grounds. The Parks and Recreation Department is working hard to create and implement a plan to help facilitate recovery landscaping options for this much-loved city asset.”
