  • Drought blamed for drying up stream at Wildwood Park

  • The stream that fills the ponds at Wildwood and Steinhart parks has stopped running

    Dave Schmitz, a resident near the park, said without the stream the pond in Wildwood Park will soon be dry too.

    He said neighbors believe the stream last ran dry in the 1990s.

  • Dan Giittinger, public properties director, said it will take some time for Wildwood Pond to go dry because the tube that feeds Steinhart Pond leaves a sizable pool.
    He said the level of Steinhart Pond is about a foot to 1.5 feet below normal, but does not affect recreation or fishing.
