Burien Town Square Park Water Feature Renovation
Project Name: Burien Town Square Park Water Feature Renovation
Scheduled Start Date: Construction – May 1st - New
Scheduled Completion Date: Late Summer/Early Fall 2017
Project Manager: Brian Victor, (206) 248-5533
Contractor: Nordic Construction
Brief Overview: Work to renovate current water feature in Burien Town Square Park. Renovation to include: replacement of existing plumbing system (supply and drain lines); hardware updates to filtration system; addition of debris trap/stormwater diverter and select mechanical equipment; and restoration of water feature landscaping/walkway.
Project Status: Updated (7-10-17) Brick paver and granite artwork removal work is complete. The Spray Park's (or pool) 10-inch drain line system and new water supply lines to the spray heads are installed. Recently, the new concrete "rat slab" and portions of the new sidewalk have been poured. Because it was wetter than usual in May and June, field conditions have impeded the work process. Also, per King County Department of Health, the spray park is considered a "pool" and subject to many of the health codes required of a public pool. Minor changes were made to the pool drain basins which require Health Department scheduling for review and acceptance. Once this has been addressed, the drain basins will be installed then followed by the brick paver and granite artwork installation. When all feature work has been completed, it will need to be tested and again require final approval from the Department of Health. Project Work is expected to be completed as soon as possible.
As a reminder, the water feature area is secured for public safety. Spray features are not available for public use. Special events, such as the Farmers Market, remain as scheduled but area around the spray park is not accessible. Thank you for the cooperation during construction.
