Published Aug. 14, 2017

FORT WORTH, Texas – Officials with the Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Stillhouse Hollow Lake announce today field work to begin on August 21 for dam safety.  

USACE will be installing instrumentation on the Stillhouse Hollow Dam for field tests. These tests will allow for data collection and observation.  

“The Stillhouse Hollow Lake Dam is functioning as designed but these field tests are important to ensure future work is accomplished in the most efficient and effective means possible,” said Col. Calvin C. Hudson II, commander, Fort Worth District. 

Corps of Engineers work crews will be on site beginning August 21 for approximately 45 days. 

There will be three work crews.  Two will be constructing access roads on the downstream side near the outlet works conduit and at each abutment.  The third will be drilling, taking samples, and installing monitoring equipment at those same locations.  There will be some excavation and grading prior to laying down access roads, and temporary removal of rip rap in some locations during drilling.  

Questions pertaining to the work being performed may be addressed by the Stillhouse Hollow Lake Office at 254-939-2461 or the District Public Affairs Office at 886-1306.
