Council adjusts splash pad plans

Unstable ground at Noonan Park leads to potential change in design

At a workshop last week, HDR Engineering's Heath Turbiville shared a computer-generated (CG) depiction of a potential design modification to the splash pad at Noonan Park upon which Moorcroft's council is currently focusing its attention.

During a recent compaction test, Advanced Geo-Tech Solutions found the ground at Noonan Park to be unstable. The crew drilled approximately 16 feet to measure the potential density of the soil before planning the installation of pipes and concrete.

With this discovery, the engineers approached the suppliers of the water features for the splash pad and Geo-Tec...
