Lake Dredging

Lake Atalanta dredging is scheduled to begin in late summer.

• Dredging should take two to three months.

• Hydro-dredging will be used to remove silt from the lake bottom.

• A hydro-dredging machine, 70 feet long and 16 feet wide, can remove about one-third of acre of soil 2 feet deep per day.

• The lake will be open to the public during the project.

• Estimated cost of the project is $1.3 million.
