Ravine Restoration

Ravine Restoration

DEP has issued a permit for Messiah College to renovate and restore the ravine behind Frey Hall.  This ravine carries rainwater from the Kline/Jordan parking lot as well as the roofs from all the surrounding buildings.  This work consists of running a pipe from an existing drainage pipe (located behind Frey Hall) to an existing pipe at Creekside Drive.  This pipe runs under Creekside Drive to the Yellow Breeches.
