New reservoir helps to prevent flooding in Peabody


City Planner Brendan Callahan said some vegetation needs to stabilize and grow in, which led to the erosion of some embankments that now need to be repaired, and additional work is needed in upland areas of the basin to improve drainage. But otherwise, the basin is operational and working as expected.

The same is true of the new nine-hole Frisbee, or disc, golf course nearby on Scouting Way. Callahan said the course was opened to the public last fall and was “getting a ton of use” before the snow fell. He said it looked like the course got some winter use, as well.

The course is accessed from Summit Street via a driveway at Commodity Components International. There is designated parking for people using the course, as well as a course map.
