Lake Restoration and Dredging Project Project Goals Restore sediment pool capacity Downstream water quality benefits Lake water quality Esthetics Improve lake water quality and habitat Stabilize stream segment Provide long term maintenance improvements
Dredging Alternatives1. Mechanically dredge deposited sediment and haul wet2. Drain lake and dry deposited sediment in place before hauling
Lake Barton ExamplePRE-DREDGING:An estimated35,000 cubic yardsof sediment hadaccumulated inthe lake, formingislands andreducing waterlevels to less thanthree feet in mostareas.
Dredge Alternative – In the Wet General Sequence Establish access and staging areas Conduct dredging utilizing barges Haul wet sediment to disposal site for drying Benefits Less weather dependent Quicker initial start to dredging Less potential for schedule extensions or delay Concerns Increased sediment handling effort at disposal area Potentially higher cost
Dredge Alternative – In the Dry General Sequence Initiate drawdown of lake Establish access and staging areas Establish diversion channels within lake Conduct dredging Benefits Higher daily sediment removal rates Minimal sediment handling effort at disposal area Potentially lower cost Concerns Very weather dependent Higher potential for delays due to weather Typically more odor from entire lake bottom being exposed Need to relocate/salvage fish
