VILLAGE OF BELLEVILLE: Lake Belle View/Sugar River Restoration Project

Purpose

The Village of Belleville will sponsor a restoration project on the Sugar River and Lake Belle View that will enhance the ecological conditions in the lake and the river in a long-term sustainable manner. Project deliverables include construction of an earthen berm that will seperate Lake Belle View from the Sugar River, extending from the community Park to the north end of the Lake. This berm will isolate the lake from the high nutrient and high suspended solids loads in the Sugar River for all but the largest flood events.
