Lake Restoration Continues to move Forward
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued their permit for lake dredging. Engineering plans and permit applications have been submitted to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, and Illinois Department of Natural Resources - Office of Water Resources.
The MPOA has received bids, and approved a contract to stabilize O'Brien Shoals and Wickline Island this summer. In addition, supplemental rip-rap will be placed on the upstream face of the Wonder Lake dam, to prevent future erosion.
