Solar aeration system at Thornberry Dog Park
Solar aeration system at Thornberry Dog Park
Over the last year, Lily’s Pond at Thornberry Off-leash Dog Park, 1867 Foster Rd., has undergone a major renovation that included dredging and deepening of the pond, a new dock, and a windmill powered aeration system.  Following the installation of the windmill staff noted that that the amount of wind in the park was not adequate to turn the windmill consistently. The Iowa City City Council has pinpointed environmental sustainability as an ongoing priority, and as part of that effort, the City installed a solar aerator to the system to power the windmill in June 2017. This project was made possible through a generous in-kind donation by a local resident.
