Lake Kittamaqundi Dredging Complete

Lake Elkhorn and Wilde Lake to be dredged in 2012

Maintenance dredging began at Lake Kittamaqundi, located in Town Center, in August 2010 and was completed at the end of 2010. Lake Kittamaqundi is one of three man-made lakes in Columbia, in addition to Lake Elkhorn and Wilde Lake.

The contractor removed 47,000 cubic yards of sediment from the lake. Sediment was dewatered and transported by truck to a land reclamation facility for beneficial reuse. All dredging equipment has been removed.

Lake Elkhorn is currently scheduled to be dredged in the summer of 2012 and Wilde Lake in the fall. The dredging of the remaining two lakes has been staggered so that CA may operate its summer camps without interference.
