106th South finally free of water
Yesterday when I checked the Jordan River Parkway tunnel under 106th South, I saw a portable pump being used to remove water from the path. When I checked this morning, the pump was gone and the path was mostly dry. There is a sump pit in the tunnel that, I assume, drains into the river and was, I assume, the source of the water that flooded the tunnel. When I looked at the pit this morning, there was significant water covering the pit and the grating over the pit. It appears that the drain in the pit is clogged.
