Construction for this project is underway. The construction contractor, D.H. Griffin Infrastructure, Inc., will start with preparing the worksite for construction. Then, work on the dam will begin.
Right now, the project is expected to be finished in mid-February so work at the lake does not heavily impact park programs and access to the greenway.
The condition of the dam at Durant Nature Preserve was evaluated by Schnabel Engineering to determine dam safety issues that need to be addressed, including the flow of water downstream of the dam and the stability of the dam's upstream slope.
This project is being completed in partnership with the Stormwater Management Division and Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department.
|2014||Preliminary evaluation of dam safety issues complete|
|Winter 2018||Final project design complete|
|Fall 2018||Construction begins|

The goal of the project is to make sure the lower dam at Durant Nature Preserve meets current Dam Safety requirements.
