The three concrete Volute pumps for the new Pavaho Pump Station are in New York. The new stormwater pumping station scheduled for completion in the summer of 2012, features the largest pumps of this type to be installed in the United States. These pumps will increase the water pumping capacity from 75,000 gallons per minute to 375,000 per minute. The station is located on Canada Drive. The pumps will arrive in Dallas after the New Year.
Jingle all the Way
The Trinity Strand Foundation is focused on connecting a hike and bike trail, between the Katy Trail along the old meanders of the Trinity River, before it was moved to its present day location to the Trinity Levee Top Trail.
To raise funds for this important urban trail project, they promote the Dallas Jingle Bell Run each year.
This year, it will again be underwritten by the Mavericks Foundation and the participants will bring out their families and even pets all dressed in holiday attire to run, walk, jump, sing, jingle, and sparkle along the trail!
Great Trinity Forest Adventure Hike in February
Lace up those hiking boots and plan to join the fun with the North Texas Orienteering Association and the City of Dallas on Saturday, February 4 from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
The Trinity River Corridor Project is planning the next forest adventure and we want you to be part of it. Orienteering is like a road rally but it is conducted on foot! It is a timed trial where pairs of people find their way from one forest marker to another by using a compass and a map. The maps are placed in plastic bags to keep them dry. Registration will be available at nota.org in January.
