Status update provided for Board information and preparation for upcoming needed Board approvals.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
The Utilities Department operates and maintains the Lake Manatee Dam.

Background Discussion
The Phase 1 repair of the Lake Manatee Dam was completed in 2014. Phase 2 repairs, primarily envisioned as downstream rehabilitation, were expected to occur in 2016 following a typical design, bid, and build process. During the repair design, site investigations indicated the need for additional work on the upstream portion of the dam in the area of the primary spillway. Information presented in this work session will brief the Board on the needed rehabilitation, the options being evaluated, and the expected schedule.
