Project/Goal Description:

The dam has served Peachtree City well for over 50 years. Lake Peachtree Dam was constructed in 1966 when there were few standards for dam construction. Through the years, design standards have changed relevant to dam height and overflow requirements related to the length and intensity of storm events. This project upgrades the current dam to meet the current standards for a Category I Classification.
