Lake White: Water level drop still being analyzed; dam is safe

Posted on 7/27/2017 by Engineering in Lake White Dam

The dam remediation project consultant, Stantec, is performing a dye test in the lake as efforts continue to determine the cause of water movement that has prevented ODNR from operating the lake at full summer pool since dam safety improvements were completed in late April. Lake levels have remained nearly stable since ODNR lowered the lake level to winter pool in late June as a safety measure and to allow for full inspections of the earthen dam and lake levels.

Lake White: Water Levels Return to Summer Pool

Posted on 5/2/2017 by Engineering in Lake White Dam

A key milestone in the dam rehabilitation and bridge replacement project at Lake White has been met and the lake level has been restored to full summer pool. During the week of April 24, contractors for ODNR and ODOT completed placement of the final layer of roller-compacted concrete on the dam crest, thereby reinforcing the top of the spillway and providing protection from overtopping.
