VIDEO: Lake Newport Dredging Wrapped Up

The Lake Newport dredging project is successfully completed ahead of schedule, Reston Association (RA) just announced.

During the works, approximately 5,000 cubic yards of material were dredged from the lake.

After the removal, sediment from the lake was placed in trucks and hauled to the disposal site in Chantilly.

This dredging scheme started in mid- January with the deployment of equipment and closing of specific areas surrounding the lake.

Routine dredging is part of RA’s lakes maintenance program, which helps to extend the life of the lakes.

As lakes age, they eventually fill in through sedimentation.

Sedimentation occurs as material from the surrounding watershed accumulate in the water. Those materials include soil from stream erosion, construction sites and unstable slopes, in addition to road sand, leaves and debris from trees, street gutters and storm sewers.
