The long-awaited Lake Olmstead dredging project could commence early next year, depending on the permits which are under negotiation with the Army Corps of Engineers.
â€śIf that is approved, then we can go back every few years, based on our monitoring, to see if more sediment is filling it up again,â€ť Hameed Malik, the cityâ€™s assistant engineering director said.
The cleanup program will involve dredging of around 130,000 cubic yards of accumulated sediment from the lake, according to augusta.com.
â€śThere will also be things done to restore the lake and enhance the recreational aspect of it, too,â€ť concluded Malik.
