Spring Mill Lake Dredging Set for Fall

Spring Mill Lake Restoration Project that involves dredging of the lake is scheduled to start this fall, according to the Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs director Dan Bortner.

The project involves dredging silt from the 23-acre lake. Dredging the lake will allow for better recreational access and improve the habitat for fish, turtles, otters, waterfowl and other wildlife.

Dredging of the lake is expected to cost around $700,000 and will happen in two phases over two or three years. Approximately 40,000 cubic yards of dredge material will be removed from the site.

Spring Mill Lake was last dredged in 1977-78, when 14,000 cubic yards of sediment was removed.
