Laurel Lakes Dredging Project to Resume in June

Posted on June 2, 2015

Good news for Laurel and all those who live around Laurel Lakes. The final phase of the Prince George’s County dredging project is set to resume during the week of June 1, 2015.

The current phase of the work will be on site at the Lake, so you will notice a fence around the upper portion of Laurel Lakes on the west-side of Oxford Drive. The walking path around the upper lake and sidewalk on the west-side of Oxford Drive will be closed throughout this process.

There will be traffic control in place as necessary, but no lane closures are expected at this time.

The Laurel Lakes Dredging Project came about when the quality of the water began to degrade due to sediment loads from storm water runoff entering the lakes through storm drain systems.

NZI, the company contracted to do the work for Prince George’s County, is expected to remove about 15,000 cubic yards of sediment, stabilize slopes on the north bank near Laurel Lake homes, reconstruct inflow protection at storm drain outfalls and improve the landscaping and function of the upper Laurel Lake.

As the project moves forward and more information is available, we will be sure to pass it along to the residents. Thank you to the residents that live around Laurel Lakes for their patience during this process.

For more information or any questions, please call Public Works at 301-725-0088.
