Lake Higgins and Lake Brandt are both integral parts of the city of Greensboro’s municipal reservoir system. Lake Higgins is a 226-acre waterway that supplies clean water to the city while also being a valuable resource for recreation, fishing and birding opportunities within the city limits. Lake Brandt, at 816 acres, is also a critical watershed for the city.
Carolina Environmental Contracting’s (CEC) contract with the city of Greensboro consisted of maintenance work on the slopes of both Lake Higgins and Lake Brandt Dam. In addition, preparations for the inspection of the spillway gates on the Lake Brandt dam were addressed.
CEC’s professional team strategically applied nearly 2,000 tons of stone to the shoreline for stabilization. The stone enhanced the integrity of the shoreline near the dam area.
To enhance the visual impact of the shoreline, we cleaned existing rock before we installed the new rock.
Turbidity curtains were installed before beginning any work on the shoreline. These curtains successfully protected the watershed from sediment integration during the work progression.
Carolina Environmental Contracting is proud that Greensboro selected our team to preserve and protect valuable city amenities like Lake Higgins and Lake Brandt.
