ECWSD Update on Lake Leon Dam Slip

LakeLeonSlip2018-2-1200The Eastland County Water Supply District (ECWSD) has been actively assessing the slip failure that occurred last Wednesday and is evaluating emergency repair options. The dam is still under a “Watch” condition as defined in the Emergency Action Plan. There is no immediate danger of the dam failing, but the potential still does exist. The ECWSD will continue to monitor the distress condition as an emergency repair plan is being developed. The roadway across the dam will remain closed and boat traffic is prohibited on the lake until further notice. A timeline for making emergency repairs will be determined after the assessments are complete and a repair plan is established.
