Dam Strong Means Strong Dam

Clark Lakers can feel very grateful for the outpouring of support to repair the dam at Ocean Beach.  Generous contributions will make possible reconstruction efforts, now scheduled for October.  Leaks on the south side of the dam threaten its integrity.  An epic fail of the dam could cause the lake level to drop 2 and a half feet or more.  With funds now in place, repair work will go forward.   

Please take 5 minutes to view this video of people at Clark Lake you may know.

Brush, old tree trunks, and a dying tree surround the dam. When roots extend into the dam’s infrastructure and then rot, water seeps in.  Repeated freezing and thaws exacerbate damage.  All of that will be corrected during the construction project.  In addition, the clean up activity will lift appearances.  Mike McKay is financing landscaping around the dam.  There will be four Spirit Trail benches for walkers, runners, cyclists, or those just wanting to take in the beauty of the lake.  Those four benches are also being placed through donations to the Dam Strong Fund and Spirit Trail.
