Decatur Dredge Report

Posted on September 1, 2015

By Allison Petty,

Work will likely continue into next year to increase the capacity of the area that holds sediment dredged from Lake Decatur.

The project involves raising the barriers, or berms, around a 523-acre site in Oakley Township. Rainy conditions make it impossible for subcontractor Terra Contracting Services Inc. to maneuver heavy trucks through the basin, said Jerry Stevens, engineering services coordinator for the city’s water management department.

“All the rain we had last year and this year put them behind,” Stevens said. “They’ve probably lost almost 150 workdays, last year and this year together.”
