The District will start construction on a new dam (Dam 101) in May of this year. This project will be the largest undertaking since the original dams were built in the late 1950s and 1960s. This dam will mitigate the most flood risk of the three identified projects to address flooding in the Lake Creek watershed. While some of our dams are eventually absorbed into public parks, this dam is located on private property. To find out more about the new dam, click here. Estimated completion is Winter of 2025.
The rehabilitation at Dam 22 at CR 139 is substantially complete, revegetation is currently in process. This project included draining the existing lake to allow for the reconstruction of the dam and primary spillway conduit.
The completed rehabilitation project at Dam 15 at Paloma Lake repaired wind erosion and added armor to minimize future erosion. Lake levels returned to normal with seasonal rains.
Rehabilitation at Dam 14 at Meadow Lake has been divided into two phases. Phase 1 will address cracking on the backside of the dam. Estimated completion is Winter of 2023. Phase 2 will protect the auxiliary spillway and the dam from excessive erosion during extreme storms.
