Due to the unusual amount of rainfall, there has been a breach of water retention mechanisms on Kendal’s construction worksite and water is flowing into some neighboring areas. Kendal at Lexington regrets this situation and is actively working with the City of Lexington, project contractors and engineers to assess and alleviate the issue.
Per requirements, sediment basins are designed to contain 134 cubic yards of water per acre of disturbed area. The water management installations were designed in excess of that requirement. It is suspected the torrential rains we received today were of an historic nature and exceed expectations.

Kendal at Lexington’s property has been affected as well. All hands are on deck to address the situation.

Please contact Executive Director Mina Tepper at (540) 463-1910 with questions or concerns. Updates will be posted on the blog at
