The project proceeded as planned this week and continues to be on schedule. The lake will immediately begin to be refilled to a level that is roughly 5' below full pool. The rate at which the lake level can be brought up is dependent on weather and associated upstream (High Rock, etc.) lake level management. Based on the current schedule we anticipate that the lake will be back to 5' below full pool no later than December 31st. The lake level will remain 5' below full pool to assist in placing capping material. The remediation project is expected to be completed by the end of January.
The Badin Lake boat landing and parking lot will continue to remain closed. As previously advised, the general public should not approach work areas due to heavy equipment traffic and operations.
