Lake Redwood Reclamation Project Update – 9-18-2020

Update on the confined disposal facility (CDF) construction:

Crews are on time and progressing quickly with the warm, precipitation free days we have been having.

Since Wednesday the 23rd, crews have finished the South, East, and half of the North berm cores.  These cores consist of a clay loam with a thick solid clay layer on the “wet” side (inside) of the berm to make a watertight seal.

Perimeter tiling is almost finished, tying in and rerouting original farm drainage tile to maintain continuous drainage for surrounding parcels.

Next will be pushing the removed black topsoil back on the berms, covering the clay core, and will be prepped for grass seeding.  This big “bathtub” will hold the 655,000 cubic yards of silt and water that will be dredged from Lake Redwood over the next couple of years.
