Lake White: Lake Refill to Begin in May

Posted on 4/24/2017 by Engineering in Lake White Dam

The water level at Lake White was increased to winter pool level following completion of placement of the initial layer of roller compacted concrete (RCC) atop the entire dam crest, installation of a new water level gauge and other dam improvements. Workers are nearing completion of placing the second layer of RCC along the dam crest and continuing other work on the dam and adjacent roadway improvements. Once the dam safety improvements are completed, the spillway gates will be raised to summer pool level, which is scheduled to occur no later than May 1. The state park boat ramp remains closed as it is located within the existing project work limits and is an area under control of the contractor during construction. Once ODNR and ODOT have accepted the project and the contractor has returned the site back to ODNR control, then the boat ramp will be reopened; project completion is scheduled for June 25.
