DNREC: All Set for Silver Lake Dredging

The DNREC Division of Watershed Stewardship in cooperation with the Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife will be dredging the western finger of Silver Lake and the sediment, approximately 1,500 cubic yards, will be reused to shore up the edge of the lake.

The staging area is located at the north end of the Tot Lot and the areas have been staked in the lake that will be impacted by the construction.

Supplies and equipment will start moving in the area over the next two weeks and this phase of work will be concluded by the end of October 2016. The remainder of the work will be done in the spring.

An amphibious excavator, designed to work in shallow water, will be used to dig out sediment.

Biodegradable logs will line the lake bank near the Tot Lot to control erosion, and dredged sediment will be used to fill behind the logs.
