Arab’s new splash pad at Arab City Park has felt the pain of the rain that has inundated the South of late.

“Last Monday morning, one of the employees noticed that the underground water tank had completely floated up out of the ground,” Arab Economic Development Coordinator Melissa Cook told the Arab City Council Tuesday night.

Cook, who was instrumental in securing a grant for the project, said the engineer and contractor for the project are investigating what happened and what damage occurred.
