Geode State Park Restoration Scheme Includes Dredging

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will begin renovations at Geode State Park this winter to improve water quality at Lake Geode and enhance accessibility and recreational opportunities in the park.

Lake levels at Lake Geode were lowered in October as a first step in this large-scale renovation. The lake is currently fully drawn-down,” DNR said in their release.

Lake restoration construction work will begin this January and continue through March 2019.

Work will include removing sediment, stabilizing the eroded shoreline, and building an in-lake silt dam, fishing jetties, and fish habitat structures.

Local angling groups will help place additional fish habitat features in the lake bottom, according to DNR.

Lake Geode is one of the lakes in the state selected for lake restoration work designed to improve water quality because of the potential economic return for the investment.
