Dredging at Evergreen Lake was completed last week, two months earlier than planned.
ESCO Construction removed 12,000 cubic feet of sediment from the north side of the lake. Much of that sediment had flowed into the lake during the 2013 flooding. Twelve-thousand cubic feet is the equivalent of putting sediment nearly 6 feet deep onto a football field.
The work was funded by a $1.4 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
