Forest Hills Watershed Detention Project - Phase 1

The project was awarded to Tschiggfrie Excavating on February 25, 2020 in the amount of $401,277.20.

Project Status:

Pond sediment removal is scheduled for late winter so that equipment can operate on frozen ground. The pond must be drained in order for the bottom sediment to freeze.  A contractor is scheduled to excavate a channel through the embankment and drain the water beginning Thursday, December 12th.  Please refrain from entering onto the pond bottom and breach area during and after draining. Iowa DNR indicated the taking of remnant fish by means other than fishing line and hook would be unlawful.  A safety fence will be installed around the breach area.
