Lake White: Work continues on dam and road repairs

Lake White: Work continues on dam and road repairs


Workers are beginning to place roller compacted concrete (RCC) as a method of armoring the dam embankment at Lake White. RCC overtopping protection is part of the dam remediation and road repair project shared by ODNR and ODOT. The temporary siphon drains have been removed and replaced with a new 48-inch lake drain system that will allow for improved management of lake levels to protect the dam during and after the project is completed. Adjacent roadway and bridge improvements also continue at Lake White. The improvement project is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.
