Fort Worth District Hosts Rep. Burgess for Lewisville Dam Safety Modification Update
LEWISVILLE, Texas (Aug. 2, 2022) U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, Commander Col. Jon Stover, left, introduces his staff to U.S. Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D., Representative serving Texas' 26th Congressional District, right, during a visit to Lewisville Lake. Rep. Burgess and staff visited the lake for a tour of the Lewisville Dam and an update on the Lewisville Dam Safety Modification. The Dam Safety Modification is a result of a March 2014 risk assessment where Lewisville Dam was confirmed as a high-urgency dam primarily due to potential loss of life consequences. The potential for internal erosion, embankment instability, or spillway instability or uplift could all result in a significant loss of life if they adversely affected the integrity of the dam. The likelihood of those failures occurring is low and will be lower still after the project, but risk will remain high due to the potential loss of life and economic impacts.
