Hall leaving Associated Urologists

Dr. Suelyn Hall is departing from the Associated Urologists office in Manhattan this month after 22 years.

“It has been my pleasure servicing the Manhattan Medical community over the past 22 years,” Hall said in a patient letter. “It was great taking care of you.”

Hall is moving to Quantum Health and Wellness Center, which is a practice she owns.

Quantum Health and Wellness Center is located at 227 Blue Earth Pl. #209 in Manhattan. The center focuses on promoting initiatives for healthy lives.

Manhattan Waterparks conclude successful summer season with reduced hours

On August 11, City Waterpark and Northview Waterpark will open to the public one last time before concluding the 2019 pool season.

Waterparks typically see a serious dip in attendance when school goes back in session and fall sports kick off. Classes at USD383 schools will begin early this year, on August 14th. With that in mind, Manhattan Parks and Recreation decided to opt for a smaller, more budget-conscious location, while still providing pool access for an extended season.

CiCo Waterpark will remain open, with reduced hours through Labor Day, for community members seeking to beat the heat during the first few weeks of school. Starting August 12, CiCo will be open 6pm-8pm Monday-Friday for Twilight Swim (half-price admission), and 1pm-6pm on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as Labor Day (regular admission). September 2nd (Labor Day) will be the last day to swim at CiCo Waterpark.

Supervisors at the Aquatics Division would also like to say they are incredibly thankful for the awesome waterpark staff who work so hard each day to keep all visitors safe and having fun! It's been a great season!

Record participation, low volunteer numbers for “Just Tri It” Triathlon

In its seventh consecutive year, Manhattan Parks and Recreation’s “Just Tri It” Youth and Adult Triathlon has reached new participation records with over 225 people registered to swim, bike and run. With the higher registration numbers comes the need to have more volunteers ready to assist with booths, record-keeping, water stations, and more.

As of July 31, mere days prior to the event on August 10th, organizers are still seeking dozens more volunteers to ensure that the triathlon runs smoothly. We ask you to volunteer! The event begins early in the morning and completes around noon. Please visit the following link for more information or to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508094bafae2ca1fb6-2019

Yearly project to extend the life of sewer lines in MHK

The City of Manhattan uses a sewer rehabilitation program to prevent groundwater from infiltrating the sewer system. Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is a sewer lining process that extends the useful life of sewer lines by installing a resin-impregnated tube into a deteriorated sewer. This process results in a seamless, jointless surface. It causes little disruption to customers because there is no digging involved.

In 2019, approximately 16,000 feet of CIPP liner will be installed at various locations, including the Stag Hill and CiCo Park neighborhoods.

You may have noticed the crews from SAK Construction working in several locations around town. Occasionally a lane closure will be required to provide access to manholes and sewer lines; please obey all traffic signs and drive with extra caution in work zones. The project is schedule to wrap up by the end of August.
