During today’s regularly scheduled meeting, the Tyler City Council authorized a construction contract for the Lake Tyler Dam Repair project with Gracon Construction, Inc.  

  

In January, 2013, Wisenbaker Fix & Associates and their geotechnical subconsultants began the engineering and design for the repair of issues discovered at the Lake Tyler Dam. The plans were forwarded to the TCEQ Dam Safety Section for review in September, 2013. The TCEQ provided comments and requested additional modeling that had to be addressed before the project could proceed into construction. Revised plans were submitted on Dec. 20, 2103 and written authorization to bid and award the repair project was received on March 28, 2014. 

The Lake Tyler Dam was constructed in 1948-1949, using the best engineering practices at the time. Due to the foundation material used in the original construction, it is believed that there has always been seepage along the downstream toe of the embankment.

Due to recent rains, the lake is currently at over flow capacity with water running over the spillway.
