White Oak Lake Reconstruction Project
- Storm Drainage System / Dam Retrofit
- Stormwater Management (Lead)
- Dewberry (Design)
Posted Friday, Nov. 8
Dewberry finished the first design plans earlier this year. Since then, there have been changes in the lake and the site's condition. For that reason, we are exploring options to re-design the project. We will be focusing on this moving forward and will keep you updated throughout the process.
We're coordinating with property owners to get required easements for the project. We cannot move forward until all property owners complete this process.
Then, we'll need to rebid the project for construction. Thank you for your patience.
White Oak Lake is a privately owned lake with a failing spillway. We are looking at options to get the dam up to current standards and to improve water quality in the watershed.
