Never Miss Important News From The RCD

Dredging and Silt Basin Construction

Over the years, silt and sediment has built up on the lakebed which reduces the depth of the waterways making boating more difficult, spurs algae growth and aquatic weed infestations, and leads to poor conditions for fish. Without thoughtful action now, our beloved Lost Lake will eventually become silted in. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

 

Lake Dredging Update

October, 2023: The dredge has begun! In 4-6 weeks, the contracted dredge should be complete. At that time, homeowners who opted in will have their shorelines dredged. We will release details to homeowners as soon as available.

Superior Seawalls provided the winning dredge bid and is currently working with our team to develop a contract that includes the details necessary to complete the dredge.

Once the contract is complete, the work can begin. We remain optimistic that the dredge will be completed yet this year.

Homeowners along the shoreline will have the opportunity to have their shoreline area dredged as well, at the homeowner's expense. This will provide an opportunity for shoreline dredging at a discounted rate, since the Contractor will already be working in our lake. A notice will be issued once the details are available.

We are excited that this long-anticipated project is moving forward.
