Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people, do not gather in groups, stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings.
As part of an ongoing effort, Lewisville Lake Park Rangers are leading the Lewisville Lake Fisheries Restoration Project with the assistance of the U.S Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) - Lewisville Aquatic Ecosystem Research Facility (LAERF), Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Inland Fisheries Division, Boy Scouts of America, Department of Energy Oak Ridge for Science and Education, and the Marcus High School Bass Club.
As part of the Dallas Floodway Bipartisan Act Supplemental Project, USACE Fort Worth, in partnership with the City of Dallas, is building new pump stations and refurbishing existing pump stations to give increased flood protection to the citizens of Dallas. In this video Sarvi Ashraf, Lead Engineer for the Dallas Supplemental; Robert Powell, Dallas Floodway Operations Manager; and Sarah Standifer, Assistant Director for Dallas Water Utilities talk about the nearly complete Able Pump Station, the largest pump station on the Trinity River, which is undergoing testing by the City of Dallas. As an integral part of the city’s interior drainage and flood control system, these pump stations move water from the city, over the levees into the river.
From every one at #USACE Fort Worth, we would like to remind our patrons to practice RESPONSIBLE RECREATION at the 25 lakes we offer. Leave no trace, stay safe, and see you at the lake!
"Life is Better at the Lake" is #USACEFortWorth’s first Podcast! Lake Life is a discussion between your friendly neighborhood Social Media Manager, Trevor Welsh, and staff members at one of our 25 lakes. We set out to make a show to highlight your USACE lake staff and the amazing work they do and well as shed some light on the finer details of what it takes to run a #USACE lake, what opportunities exist for recreation patrons, and what it takes to maintain those opportunities.
