Although this dam was originally built in 1901 to form Bachman Lake, it has only needed minor repairs over its lifetime.
The rehabilitation of the Bachman Lake Dam and Spillway will ensure dam safety, minimize flood risk, and provide regulatory compliance.
The dredging maintenance improvements will help revitalize the lake, improve water quality and allow residents to enjoy the lake for years to come.
