Phoenix Lake Preservation and Restoration Project
The main components of the Proposed Project include sediment removal and wetland enhancement, sediment reuse and disposal, and tributary improvements. Most of the sediment removed from the lake would be placed at the Cedar Ridge Apple Ranch and on the Summers property immediately north of the lake. Sediment would also be placed in strategic locations within the lake to improve water circulation and manage sedimentation. The Proposed Project would also involve sedimentation and flood protection improvements along lower Chicken Creek and construction of a crossing over Power Creek. Implementation of the Proposed Project would increase the water supply reliability and improve water quality for TUD’s largest water system, serving more than 10,000 people, as well as commercial and agricultural users. The release of the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration(ISMND) for the Phoenix Lake Preservation and Restoration Project was July 21, 2017. A Special Board meeting was held on August 2, 2017 to discuss the ISMND. The public comment period closed on August 21, 2017.
