Large Scale Lake Planning
The City of Whitewater is sponsoring a project to write a plan to prepare for an extended drawdown of both Tripp and Cravath Lakes. The extended drawdown is planned for September of 2019 through the spring of 2021.
Activities: 1) plan the rate and depth of the drawdowns; 2) design bid ready plans for navigational lane dredging during the drawdown; 3) develop the lake restoration plan including burn plan for exotic emergent plant species, aquatic plant reintroduction and fish stocking; 4) measure the sediment depth in the winter of 2018-2019 to start the study on summer sediment consumption; 5) public engagement element to include publications and 3 public informational meetings.
Deliverables: A lake restoration plan that includes all the elements listed in the activities.
