Why are Franklin Park’s Waterfalls Dry?

614now Staff

For the last year and much of last year, Franklin Park’s waterfalls have been a little lackluster.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the dry waterfalls have been due to failing pumps. The waterfalls were built in 1991 and sit between two ponds where the water is supposed to flow from flat rock to the first pond and then to the lowest pond.

The failing pumps are due to iron eating bacteria, and park officials are working with Kramer Engineering to craft a proposal that deals with the issue, according to the Dispatch.

After the proposal is made, it must be sent to the Recreation and Parks Commission, and finally to City Council before the waterfalls can be repaired.
