East Reservoir: Rip Rap to be Installed

Posted on 12/30/2019 by Engineering in Portage Lakes

Cat Swamp Work Complete

The Cat Swamp gatehouse maintenance is complete. The Ruhlin Company will remove stoplogs from the concrete channel, which were previously installed to isolate the Cat Swamp from East Reservoir, and allow the Cat Swamp to refill.

Rip Rap to Be Installed

The Ruhlin Company began to install rip rap (protective stone) around the Cat Swamp peninsula earlier this month and this work will continue through January, weather permitting. With the mid-week holidays, no work was performed last week and no work will be performed this week. To allow for the rip rap placement, lake levels will remain at 15 inches below normal pool until February 1, 2020. If the water level can be raised before that, you will be notified.

Bollard Installation Postponed

We anticipate completing installation of the nautical-inspired posts over the winter, when the ground is more solid, weather permitting.
