9/4/2018 update, " The water is slowly receding at Woodside Heights Park", starts here.

Compare the panels just below the center point in photo below to same scene in the 8/28 photo.

Looks like another 8 feet to the water line compared to 8/28.


The planter in thet lower-center portion of the photo is no longer surrounded by water.

Water is receding from the swing set

And the benches of the picnic table are now in view.  I'd like to think that most of the water level drop is attributable to the pumping of Tiedeman Pond.

As of yesterday, the pond level continued to rise.

Steps to Woodside Heights Parks will likely need to be stabilized.


Up next:  Tree removal, reinforcement of road bed, new curb and gutter.


Under normal circulation, the pond would appear in the top third of the frame.


Floodwater encroaches onto condo parking lot
