Green Lake Update


Dear fellow residents:


I promised to give you updates as work progresses on the Green Lake dredging and dam reconstruction project.

Zoladz Construction Company Inc. began work in late March by constructing a "staging area" where equipment to be used on the project is stored.  A number of trees had to be removed along with the construction of a "haul/maintenance" road and that work has been completed. Next a sediment basin (pond-like structure) was built on the downstream side of the dam.  It will collect silt that flows from the lake, preventing it from building up downstream.  Then a roadway allowing dump trucks to enter the lake basin was constructed.   Work on the dam itself is also continuing which will result in a stronger re-enforced dam with a much larger spillway to reduce neighborhood flooding.

Tomorrow, Friday, May 20th, the dredging process begins.  Trucks will enter the lake basin from N. Lake Drive, be loaded with dredging material, travel down the haul road to Thorn Ave. and exit on Big Tree Road (20A). The material will then be taken to the former Bethlehem Steel Plant in Lackawanna. 

The tentative completion date remains September 15, 2016, however, that is very weather dependent.  A dry summer would enable the project to remain on schedule. 


.....Updates will follow as information becomes available to my office.


Warm Regards,



Dr. Patrick J. Keem

Orchard Park Town Supervisor
