2007 - Dam Replacement Project
Status: 100% Complete

A $50K grant was awarded to LSWA by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2007. These funds were used to replace the valve mechanism in the outfall gate in Millbury.
 
The stainless steel gate mechanism was manufactured by Rodney Hunt Company and installed in November 2008 by R.H. White Construction.
 
During installation it was discovered that the dam mechanism was on the brink of failure and probably would not have lasted another season, with potentially serious results for Lake Singletary.
