Construction is complete! The lake is refilled with water and fish. We've removed all of the orange and black construction fences too.
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. Upgrades will slow down the flow of water coming from the lake, protect the stream below the dam, and make the dam more stable.
This project is being completed in partnership with the Stormwater Management Division and Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department.
|2014||Preliminary evaluation of dam safety issues complete|
|Winter 2018||Final project design complete|
|Fall 2018||Construction begins|
|Winter 2019||Construction complete (Lake refilled this summer/fall)|
The goal of the project is to make sure the lower dam at Durant Nature Preserve meets current dam safety requirements.
