Water Retention Basins To Be Reworked in Hatfield

Hatfield Township is moving ahead with plans to naturalize three water retention basins.   The township commissioners are seeking proposals to reengineer and plant different mixes of natural growth at the basins on Downing and Stewart Drives as well as Fairgorunds Road near Clemens Park.   The idea is to improve water retention.   A $41,000 state grant is available for the project.   It requires an 18% local match.
