Portage Lakes: East Reservoir; Dam Improvements To Get Underway

Posted on 7/11/2017 by Engineering in Portage Lakes

Pre-construction activity on the East Reservoir Dam Improvements Project gets underway during July. Starting July 17, the Ruhlin Company and its subcontractors will begin installing fencing to secure construction work areas. They will also remove trees and other existing landscaping to create a clear work zone for construction crews and to make way for the major improvements to follow.
