Bachman Lake Dam Rehab

Dallas Water Utilities is rehabilitating the Bachman Lake Dam and Spillway to minimize flood risk, ensure dam safety and meet regulatory requirements.

Bachman Dam was originally built in 1901 to mitigate flooding of nearby properties, infrastructure and businesses.

While the dam has only needed minor repairs over its lifetime, larger improvements are required to minimize flood risk and comply with regulations for dam safety. Trail improvements are also needed for public safety and better accessibility.

Lake dredging was completed in Spring 2023 to restore the lake’s depth. Construction on the dam, lake spillways and trail improvements began in December of 2023.

Bachman Lake Dam

The heavy rains we received this spring are a good reminder of why we're making improvements to #bachmanlakedam. The new labyrinth spillway (example pictured right) will be able to release up to 50% more water per minute during large storm events compared to the current, simple spillway (straight on top – pictured left). The zigzag structure will increase the overall length of the spillway where water can flow, mitigating the risk of flooding in areas around the lake.

Las fuertes lluvias que hemos tenido recientemente nos recuerdan por qué estamos realizando mejoras en la presa de #BachmanLake. El nuevo desagüe de laberinto (ejemplo a la derecha) podrá liberar hasta un 50% más de agua por minuto durante las grandes tormentas en comparación con el actual desagüe simple (recto en la parte superior - imagen a la izquierda). La estructura en zigzag aumentará la longitud total del desagüe por donde puede fluir el agua,mitigando el riesgo de inundaciones en las zonas próximas al lago.

Bachman Lake Dam

#DidYouKnow that improving #bachmanlakedam requires adding soil and improving drainage to keep it strong for decades to come? The emergency spillway – north of the dam – will also have soil added to strengthen the berm and reduce flood risks in the adjacent area. bachmanlakedam.com/project-overview/ #bachmanstrong

¿Sabía usted que las mejoras de la presa del #lagobachman requieren añadir tierra y mejorar el drenaje para mantenerla firme durante décadas? Al desagüe de emergencia - al norte de la presa - también se le agregará tierra para reforzar la berma y reducir los riesgos de inundación en la zona adyacente.

Bachman Lake Dam

Construction improvements along the #bachmanlakedam include a new, improved trail over the dam. Once completed, the trail will be wider and feature new lighting and more gradual incline between the south end of the embankment and Denton Drive.

Las mejoras de la construcción a lo largo de la presa del #lagobachman incluyen un nuevo sendero mejorado sobre la presa. Una vez terminado, el sendero será más ancho y contará con nueva iluminación y una pendiente más gradual entre el extremo sur del terraplén y Denton Drive.
