During the work, the reservoir will not be completely drained in order to preserve its ecosystem.
Specialists of the municipal economy complex will restore the coastal fortification of the Bolshoi Grafsky Pond, which is about one and a half kilometers long. The preparatory work has already begun.
The reinforced concrete wall around the perimeter of the reservoir fell into disrepair and lost its aesthetic appearance. Over time, such damage can lead to the loss of functionality of the pond. During the repair, the old concrete layer is dismantled and a new one is applied using the gunning method, in which the mortar is applied in layers under the pressure of compressed air. After the completion of the work, the finishing layer will be impregnated with a waterproofing material. This will ensure the watertightness and frost resistance of the shore structure.
The work will be carried out with a slight decrease in the water level; the pond will not be completely drained. This will help preserve its ecosystem. The renovation work will take about nine months.
The reservoir is located in the Veshnyaki area in the Raduga park. The park received this name because of the arc-shaped cascade of ponds located on its territory: Bolshoi Grafsky, Maly Grafsky and Italian. Park “Raduga” is one of the favorite places for recreation of the residents of the region.
The list of water bodies subject to improvement and reconstruction is formed annually taking into account the opinion of the townspeople.
