City of Whitewater Gives Lakes Drawdown Project Update
According to an update from the City of Whitewater regarding the lakes drawdown project, the dredging portion of the project has come to an end. The total estimated dredged out was close to 70 thousand cubic yards of material. Following the conclusion of dredging, the project moves into restoration. This will consist of another controlled burn of the lake beds, which will occur between mid March and April, along with revegetation of the shoreline along the park areas and dredged areas. The timeframe for this is from April through May. The target date to refill the lakes is June 10, 2022.
