Lake Whetstone Riser Repair: Lake Levels to be Lowered

Lake Whetstone is a stormwater treatment structure and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is responsible for structural maintenance of the Lake. Stormwater management ponds require control structures to regulate pond drainage. Lake Whetstone's control structure is a concrete riser. An inspection in 2011 found that several components were in need of an engineer's evaluation and possible repair. An engineering consultant was hired by DEP to perform an evaluation, and subsequently recommended repair work. Repair work will begin in mid-November. As part of this repair work, platforms and a crane will be located on the lake. Orange safety fencing will surround the lake, and the lake's water level will be reduced by approximately 4 feet for the duration of the project which is slated to be completed by March.
