Evergreen Lake Dredge Project Kicks Off

The Evergreen Lake Dredge Project started this week and is scheduled to be completed by mid-September, according to the Evergreen Metropolitan District.

Initially, crews will be dredging from shore using a long reach excavator and after a few weeks of operations, a 30-by-80-foot barge will be set into the channel above Evergreen Lake.

The barge will be used as a platform for a trackhoe that will remove 12,000 cubic yards of silt that piled up after the September 2013 flooding.

The dredging will be concentrated on the north side near the Lakepoint Center, where Bear Creek flows into Evergreen Lake.

Operators will use “turbidity curtains” to prevent suspended sediments from spreading out to the rest of the lake.

The dewatered silt will be transported by dump trucks to the former EDS transfer station on Highway 73.
