Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy's mission is to restore, enhance, and preserve Atlanta Memorial Park, making it a beautiful, connected, and sustainable urban greenspace for the enjoyment of all.

Sewer Cleaning and Sewer Aerial Removal Update
 
 
      
 
AMPC appreciates the hard work underway by the Department of Watershed Management (DWM) to remove built-up debris from the sewer pipes in Memorial Park. Please see below for the latest update from DWM on their ongoing efforts and the work to commence soon on removing the two aerial sewer lines crossing Peachtree Creek between Northside Drive and Howell Mill Road.
 
The contractor cleaned appx 870 linear feet of one of the two 72-inch relief sewers and removed/disposed of appx 146 tons of debris.  Crews will be back to clean the other 72-inch relief sewer next month and will then begin on the cleaning of the 90-inch trunk sewer. 
 
Other good news is that the work to remove the two aerial sewer lines is expected to commence shortly after the New Year.  The projected duration for the project is 10 months.  
 
The projects should not impact the park, which will remain open to the public.  

 
Thanks to Cox Enterprises
 
and their 88 volunteers
 
for a successful Peachtree Creek clean-up day!

An enthusiastic and motivated Team Cox removed 2 1/2 tons of debris from Peachtree Creek on October 13 including 24 tires! Thanks to their efforts and AMPC's partnership with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, Peachtree Creek is cleaner for those that live in Atlanta Memorial Park and for our neighbors downstream.  Thank you Cox Enterprises!
