Project Moves Forward with Bids for Dredging Bachman Lake

May 4, 2021
Dallas Water Utilities is currently accepting bids for the Bachman Lake Dredging 2021 Project. The project will remove sediment and debris in Bachman Lake through hydraulic dredging, convey the sediment slurry to an offsite dewatering and truck loading location, and dispose of the waste at area landfills. Water separated from the sediment will be brought back to Bachman Lake.

A bathymetric survey will be required before and after dredging to verify removal quantities. An onsite lake access area and an offsite temporary sediment processing facility will need to be properly prepared, maintained, and restored over the course of the project. This work must be completed within compliance of the project’s plan and specifications along with local, regional, and state standards.

Deadline to submit project bids is May 28, 2021.
