Brockton Drive Dam Rehabilitation

Phase 2

We are replacing the structure at the lower dam on Brockton Drive Lake with a roller-compacted concrete structure. The project addresses dam safety concerns, reduces the frequency and severity of flooding, and improves water quality.

Construction

Phase 2 (Lower dam)

The design for phase two is complete. The spillway structure and the dam at the lower lake will be replaced with a roller-compacted concrete structure. Construction is now expected to start in winter 2020 - There have been a few delays getting the required permits for the project. 

Since this dam is not functioning properly, the lake will be drained through the start of construction. This will limit the amount of water in the lake to reduce impacts from heavy rain storms.

History

The existing spillway for the upper lake at Brockton Drive was in very poor condition. The upper lake collected debris and flooded nearby homes during heavy rainstorms. The lower lake dam spillway is too small and there is severe erosion at the outlet of the pipe.

Phase One

The project included replacing stormwater drainage and sanitary sewers, and transforming the upper lake to a stream channel. The stream channel flows through the newly constructed stormwater infrastructure into the lower lake. These changes will improve the channel's water quality and reduce flooding to nearby homes.
