Cook Park Sewer Line
A portion of Clean Water Service’s West Durham Basin Improvement Program has started at Cook Park. The project is replacing aging interceptor pipes that help control water flow with larger, more resilient pipes to improve wastewater capacity. Truck traffic, trail closures and detours at the park are planned through April 2019. Work began near the wastewater plant and progresses westward. More info is on the CWS website.
