Improvements begun at Resthaven

The City of Washington Stormwater and Wastewater Distribution Crew is currently working in Rest­haven Cemetery to make stormwater drainage improvements at the property. Duration of the work will last for the next several weeks.

Exploratory digging throughout Resthaven and along Heritage will be done to install new drainage pipes. A section of Heritage will be temporarily closed to install new pipe beneath the street. After the new pipe is installed, the street will be repaved, and grass seeded.

Citizens are asked to be patient as the improvements are made. The cemetery will show minor cosmetic impact for a short time, but will return to normal as soon as possible. Questions can be addressed to the City’s Cemetery Committee by calling 706-990-0000 or emailing museums@washingtonwilkes.org.
