Druid Hill Reservoir Plan

DPW Druid Hill Reservoir Plan

On Wednesday, February 13, 2013  the Baltimore City Department of Public Works
presented the Druid Hill Reservoir pla
n to the Friends and interested parties.  Portions
of the park and the reservoir were under review for major construction for a drinking
water project.  The plan that was presented would have been devastating to the park and
it's future.

Great community pressure prevailed with the October 24 presentation of an updated plan
for the Druid Hill Park Re
servoir (1863–71)  Developed with the Department of Recreation
and Parks, the extensively revised project now includes installing two precast, pre-stressed water storage tanks (400 –550 feet in diameter) underground in the western end of the
original lake as a lawn for gathering; connecting to existing water trans-mission mains;
providing facilities to treat the water entering and exiting the tanks; restoring the
existing fountain in Druid Reservoir; restoring/rebuilding the existing stone wall and
ornamental iron fencing within project limits; adding park amenities such as an
amphitheater, row boating facility; and, widening the walk/bike path along Druid Hill Drive.
