A company has been hired by Peachtree City to stave off erosion problems that have endangered the spillway in the Battery Way Park.

Engineered Restoration Inc. will undertake pressure grouting repairs to cure voids caused by stormwater undercutting the existing concrete spillway, according to city staff.

The damage has created a potential for the spillway to collapse “and represents a significant safety concern,” staff noted in a memo to the city council last week.

The erosion is also beginning to undercut the supports to the multi-use path bridge, officials said.

The contract for the work is $19,800 as ERI had the lowest of the five bids submitted and was deemed to have positive feedback from its previous projects.

This project is being funded by the city’s stormwater program.
