Flood Plain Restoration Project
Click to Enlarge
Manheim Borough has just been awarded a $50,000 Water Quality Impact Grant through the Clean Water Fund of the Lancaster County Community Foundation for the Memorial Park stream/flood plain restoration project.
This now brings the number of grants to FIVE, totalling $949,000!
This project is a result of a mandate by PA DEP / EPA for the Borough (and all municipalities) to meet the Chesapeake Bay pollution reduction regulatory requirements. The total project cost is estimated to be $1.5 million dollars, so the award of these grants will greatly reduce the financial burden on the taxpayers of the Borough. Design and permitting is currently underway, with implementation beginning in the summer of 2020.
Emerald Ash Borer Infestation
Due to infestation from the Emerald Ash Borer, a number of trees have been removed from Memorial Park. Unfortunately most of the trees at Memorial Park are Ash trees and have been affected to the point of being beyond treatment. The Borough has removed trees along the path from the covered bridge to White Oak Road. The remainder of the wooded area north and south of the path is closed to the general public for safety reasons.
All of the Ash trees will be removed with the Memorial ParK stream restoration project (see above), with many of the trees being repurposed for the stream bank stabilization proess. New, suitable trees will be planted as part of this project, and new walking paths will also be constructed.
Memorial Park Veterans‘ Memorial
Plans are underway for a veterans’ memorial at Memorial Park. For more information
