Percolation Ponds Dry Along McGlincey

Lack of rain is reason for the lack of water in the ponds near Edith Morley Park.

Visitors at may have noticed that there's a serious in the area.

This might have to do with the fact that the there are all dried up.

Santa Clara Valley Water District Program Administrator Marty Grimes said the current state of the percolation ponds has to do with the amount of rain the area received this year.

"The short answer is that we didn’t get enough rain this year to keep those ponds full," Grimes said in an email. "The good news is the groundwater basin is in good condition, so by emptying these ponds, we have a chance to do some ."

Serious lack of geese? I am quite pleased with the lower number of these beautiful birds. Less filth to clean off my deck, my windows, my car. The lower number means the families are not brutally killing the other family's smaller offspring. And, there are not hundreds honking 24/7.

Glad they are putting this lack of rainwater situation to good use to do much needed maintenance - looking at the positive :)

We noticed a lot more water than usual in the culvert near Virginia Park yesterday. Guess that explains it then. Have to agree with Deb, at least they are able to get things done and the ground water is in good shape.

I miss the geese, even though they can be crabby!
