Progress Update - January 18, 2019

  • City Lake has been drained.
  • Water is being pumped from Horseshoe Reservoir directly to the treatment plant.
  • Work on a bypass line is underway to feed the treatment plant and once completed there will no longer be a need pump water.
  • Deconstruction of the existing dam is underway and excavation is proceeding on schedule.

Once these steps are complete the dam will be rebuilt, a new intake for the treatment plant will be installed and the dam will be refilled.
