This project includes draining and dredging Wilderness Lake. Dredging is the process in which sediment is removed from the bottom of the lake. This sediment build up is a natural occurrence from rainwater and snow washing dirt, sand, rocks, and other materials into the lake. Over a six month period, the lake will refill naturally from rainwater and snow. Public Works will also replace two undersized corrugated metal pipe crossings under the trail as part of the project.
