USA: Fayette County to Conduct Dredging of Lake Peachtree

Fayette County officials plan to conduct dredging of the Lake Peachtree.

The dredging is necessary to remove silt and muck that has accumulated over the years on the lake’s bottom, The Citizen informed.

According to Fayette County Administrator Steve Rapson, the County’s consulting engineering firm is making lake dredging plan, and the project timeline is expected to be completed by the end of the week.

Since the lake is used as a water reservoir, the dredging of the lake is required to be conducted every 10 years.

The lake was drained in February to allow for shore and dock maintenance, during that period structural problems were found at the lake’s spillway.
