Des Moines cemetery pond should refill soon

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A pond in Des Moines’ Glendale Cemetery should soon return to normal.

City crews had drained the pond to work on a 94-year-old sewer line that travels beneath the spot.

The city says the project was part of an effort to line sewers, which improves their structural integrity and prevents water from entering.

The sight of a largely empty pond was surprising to cemetery visitors and especially disappointing to the birds that live at the pond.

The work is complete and the pond should return to normal as rain falls on the area.
