U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct inverted filter berm on Proctor Lake Dam

FORT WORTH, Texas –   The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Proctor Lake has announced that construction of an inverted filter berm on the dam will begin April 29.  The inverted filter berm is an interim risk reduction measure being constructed to contain uplift from the exiting under seepage and control by extending the unfiltered exit seepage path.

Construction may last up to four months but will have no impact on recreational activities at Proctor Lake, and all facilities will be opened as scheduled.  However; due to the hauling of construction materials, there will be a noticeable increase in traffic of semi trailers on Farm to Market 1476, Highway 377, and Highway 2861.
