Last updated on May 27, 2022

An immediate repair project is necessary for a drainwell located near Lake Arnold. Soon, the Public Works Department will hire a specialty contractor to construct a new drainwell structure to replace the existing one.

Immediate replacement of the structure is necessary because the drainwell has reached the end of its life span.

We anticipate the repair project will take approximately four months to complete.

The City's Public Works Department is closely monitoring the global supply chain issue, labor shortages, and increases in the price of materials.

The competitive bid contractor and the City will strive to complete a capital improvement project on time and within budget. However, due to circumstances outside the control of both entities, there may be delays in necessary materials, potential for projects to be completed over budget, and potential delays.

We will continue to work with the community and our stakeholders to address the abovementioned issues and return normalcy to a community.


Project hours are 7 am to 5 pm, between Monday and Friday. Work on Saturday may become necessary should the contractor experience unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather. Project hours will resemble weekday project hours.

Once underway, the contractor will place turbidity barriers at the shoreline near the project site to protect the integrity of Lake Arnold. There is a high potential for noise during the project. Drilling and well constructing equipment will be necessary to construct the new drainwell structure.

Should there be adverse weather, there is a contingency to pump water from Lake Arnold to another water body to minimize opportunities for flooding.

Currently, no road closures or detours are necessary for the community.
