Tamarack Lake Update

Posted on November 12, 2018

Updates on the Tamarack Lake Dam Reconstruction Project will be available here whenever there is news to report from the PA Fish and Boat Commission.

Update as of November 12, 2018 on Tamarack Lake is that the PA Fish and Boat Commission received the permits for construction from the DEP Division of Dam Safety on June 2nd, 2017.  The project moved through the final stages of the DGS pre-construction process to clear, accept proposals and award the project for construction.  NRCS and City of Meadville agreements were finalized.  Thomas Construction of Grove City, PA was awarded the project and construction meetings have taken place with CONSTRUCTION THAT BEGAN IN LATE NOVEMBER OF 2017.  Estimated time line includes a completion date for construction is expected to be delayed until MID JANUARY of 2019.  Refilling of the lake will begin in 2019 and take some time as milestones will have to be met.  Final landscaping and grass work will not be completed UNTIL SPRING-SUMMER of 2019.

As both Tamarack Lake Dam areas are still considered a construction site, please remember no one is permitted to be on site other than Thomas Construction employees and subcontractors.  The property is not available to the general public.  Please remember to slow down when traveling in the area and to keep a safe distance from the construction site, as there will be slow moving, big construction equipment and lots of large trucks hauling materials in and around the area.
