Lake Peachtree Spillway - Progress Reports
Lake Peachtree Spillway Replacement

September 15, 2016             View Presentation

- Staff and consultants recommended what will be the first or second Piano Key Weir designed spillway in the United States.  Council agreed and design work is moving forward.

Due to space issues, the old spillway will have to be removed prior to construction of the new spillway, requiring the lake to be partially lowered over the winter months during construction.  The project was on track to lower Lake Peachtree and begin construction in August/September of 2017, with construction to be completed in the April/June 2018 timeframe.  Cost for the spillway was estimated at $3.5 million.
