Kennedy Lake Lowering for Stormwater Pipe Evaluation

The City has received permit #18-033 from NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife to lower Kennedy Lake up to 4-feet between now and July 31, 2018. The lake lowering is necessary for the City to inspect the bladder dam system and drainage piping between Kennedy Lake and the stormwater well, which is located on the Wastewater Treatment Plant property at 900 W. Broad Street.

The City inflates or deflates the bladder dam inside the drainage piping to control the water level in Kennedy Lake prior to forecasted storm events. These features are being inspected and evaluated as part of the City’s on-going stormwater management and flood-mitigation planning.
