Collaboration: Green Lake De-Silting Project, 2006

Wednesday, March 01, 2006
In the fall of 2006, the City of Shaker Heights Public Works Department dredged the Green Lake catch basin to slow down the filling in process of the artificial lake, constructed in the 1950s. The DBWP negotiated a solution for dredge spoils with the Shaker Country Club. The club received the dredge material, reducing the cost to the city to $85,200. Oxygen levels in Green Lake have improved slightly since the de-silting.
