Ground Water Problem on Bryant Ave
Original post made by A. Mayor, Old Palo Alto, on Jun 1, 2011
No construction has taken place since last fall, when the workers digging an ususually deep basement breached the ground water table under this neighborhood. The construction company received a permit 8 months ago from Palo Alto city to "pump the ground water" to the storm drain. No work has been done and the water appears to be constant flowing at great volume as though it is an underground river. Water is also leaking around the long pipe along the gutter.
We live a block away on Emerson St and we and other neighbors are concerned about this situation. How and when will the flowing water be stopped? Does the loss of that much water volume destabilize the ground? Did the city issue a permanent permit to "pump" the ground water from a construction site where work has apparently halted for months?
