Even after significant rain on April 22 and for much of last week, Weston First Selectman Gayle Weinstein said Monday that Revson Baseball Field — notorious for its drainage problems and the site of a major reconstruction project for almost a year— is still on track to open soon.
As of Monday, a patch of sod that had died on the varsity field because of a fault in the newly installed irrigation system had been replaced by the contractor “at his cost,” Ms. Weinstein said.
In addition, the remaining clay needed for the varsity field had been delivered and was mostly — but not entirely, due to weather conditions — spread on the baselines.
Ms. Weinstein said that despite the varsity field not quite being ready, John Conte, town engineer, reported he was “very happy with the way the water was running off the field,” and pleased with what he was seeing so far concerning the way water was puddling after it rained.
She said she was happy the completed JV field, which also had significant drainage work done to it, was playable the day after the very heavy rainfall April 22.
“We’re not there yet, but it’s getting there,” Ms. Weinstein said.
