ABOUT THIS PROJECT
This project involved the removal of approximately 950 acre feet of sediment from Lake Decatur’s Basin 6. Engaged as a private contractor, Rivers and Lakes completed the project ahead of schedule in December 2011, saving valuable time and money for the client. Project operations were performed by the cutter suction dredge LW. This project provided the city of Decatur with the ability to increase water supply for consumers and improve tourism with greater recreational opportunities for lake users.
