November 1, 2019 – The second and final phase of the Bobs Lake Dam project began in July 2019 and is nearing completion.
Over the past four months the contractor worked to complete the remaining one-third of the dam – the north wall connecting the two sluiceways to the shoreline. The newly completed dam was activated on October 18, 2019 prior to the demolition of the old dam.
With this work done the contractor has moved to restoration of the river bed, shoreline and the surrounding project staging area. The restoration included the establishment of an access road and parking space to allow access to the dam for operational and water management work. The majority of the work has been completed and the contractor has moved off site but will return in the spring to complete the final landscaping requirements with project completion expected for spring 2020.
