Dredging effort could finish ahead of schedule

DECATUR, Ill. (AP) — City officials in Decatur say progress is moving along on the Lake Decatur dredging effort and the project could be done ahead of schedule.

Interim Decatur Public Works director Matt Newell tells The (Decatur) Herald and Review that about 76 percent of the work has been done and there’s a possibility work will be finished by the end of next year. The completion date for the project has been set at December 2019. City contractor Great Lakes Dredge and Dock has been at the lake for three years.

The goal of the project is to increase lake capacity by 30 percent, or an additional 52 days of water supply. That’s being done by removing tons of sediment from the bottom of the lake and pumping it to a storage site in Oakley.
