Early stages of Laing Lake project underway in Alliance

Posted: Updated:
Alliance city officials are looking to improve the water quality and establish a better place for fish to live with an upcoming lake project.
During the latest city council meeting, board members approved funding to begin conception al outlines and early engineering stages for Laing Lake which is located near the north end of Box Butte Avenue.

Cultural and Leisure Services director Shana Brown says the first phase is expected to last until November. Part of the phase will focus on evaluating the bottom of the lake and deciding how much sediment is needed for habitat development.

Brown says the last lake project focused on eliminating geese crowding and the appearance of the lake.
"People were really excited about the progress we made because it cleaned up the park, we made it a more attractive environment for people to use so we hope that these improvements will be a continuation of that progress," said Brown.
She says construction on the lake project is expected to begin in the spring of 2015 once studies are completed by this November.
