July has proven to be a very busy month in Fuller Brook Park with hot, dry weather. This is good for work in the brook, for which low water flow is helpful, but stressful for all the trees and grass planted over the past year, which are struggling to become established. Major items of new work are show below.
July and August are good months for work in the street because of lower traffic volumes and limited school transportation, mostly for camps. The DPW has completed the drainage work in Wellesley Ave., which upgrades the size of the drain to the brook to accommodate increased development over recent years. Photos show excavating under a waterline. Installing the larger drain pipe, and the enlarged outfall to Fuller Brook.
