Three Lakes Estate Detention Ponds Improvements
Currently, partners of the Easter Lake Watershed Project are working on completing dredging, shoreline, and habitat work in Easter Lake. In order to improve long term water quality in Easter Lake, it is necessary to reduce as much sediment entering the lake as possible. One part of this effort includes making sure the detention ponds such as those in the Three Lake Estates area and Easter Lake Drive west of SE 27th Court are able to retain as much silt as possible. During construction of homes in this area, a significant amount of silt was deposited in these ponds. At this point in time, a conceptual plan is being developed to improve the stormwater management function of these ponds which will likely include dredging to remove silt from some or all of the ponds.
