Lake Linganore Dredging Project Moving Forward

Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner announced yesterday that the Lake Linganore Dredging Project is moving forward on schedule.

The project is aimed at restoring water depths in the upper portion of the lake by removing up to 350,000 cubic yards of sediment.

As part of the emphasis on an open and transparent government, Executive Gardner announced that the Dredging Project design process is completed through the final stages and permitting. In addition, the bid phase and contractor selection will occur in the next three months.

This is an excellent example of county government working together with the city and our citizens on a major water-supply project that has long-term benefits for the community,” commented Executive Gardner. “I especially want to thank our staff and the contractors for the careful planning and execution of the Lake Linganore Dredging Project, keeping it on schedule as we work toward improvements to the Lake.

Since its construction in 1972, Lake Linganore, a man-made, 209-acre lake, has been losing water storage capacity due to sedimentation. In 2014, Frederick County, the City of Frederick and the Lake Linganore Association (LLA) reached an agreement to remove sediment to improve water capacity and restore access. Sediment will be dredged from the lake in the area of the lake upstream of Boyers Mill Road.

The 2014 agreement allocates the cost of the dredging project among the three entities with the City funding 50 percent, the County 25 and the LLA 25 percent.
