Rehab Project in Stilling Area of Tuttle Creek Dam Nears Completion


The rehabilitation project for the stilling basin below Tuttle Creek Dam is nearing completion, with it being given back to control of the Army Corps of Engineers Operations team at the lake.

Operations Project Manager Brian McNulty tells KMAN the project included closure of an old drain that helped cause a sinkhole.

Public access remains closed and there won’t be a full-reopening for a while. The east side of Outlet Park will remain shut down.

Also at the lake, testing will likely confirm a blue-green algae bloom in the River Pond area.  McNulty tells KMAN a warning has been posted for the area because of the dog park and beach.

Animals are the most susceptible to getting sick from the algae. The KDHE is testing water samples and will have results by mid-week.
