Lake Kampeska Preliminary Dredging Assessment:
The HDR Engineering firm was hired to develop a preliminary assessment on the possibility of dredging two areas of Lake Kampeska.
The first site would include the silted in area on the east end of the lake near the inlet /outlet. This area has silted in over the years do to numerous flooding events.
The second site studied is the Jackson Park area. A proposed marina in this area would require dredging of a channel to the marina and enlarging the existing wetland area to accommodate the proposed marina.
