The City of Alcoa Public Works & Engineering Department announced that construction has officially started at the Duck Pond. The water level will be lowered as needed for the contractor to work in and around the project area; however there is no intent to drain the pond completely. FreedomFest 2019 will continue as scheduled on Saturday, June 29th.
The improvement project is expected to take approximately 9 months and will include a walkway encircling the Duck Pond, water gardens and other area improvements.
