Lake shoreline protection begins
local picture
Heavy equipment and a large pile of rocks sit at Windy Point as some long-awaited shoreline protection projects on Grand Lake got underway Friday. State capital funds totaling $450,000 allocated more than six years ago and another $250,000 allocated last year will be used. The projects include placing riprap on the north side of Prairie Creek, building a dike at the mouth of Prairie Creek to protect a wetland and fish spawning area behind it, placing riprap in two places at the mouth of Chickasaw Creek and placing riprap all the way around Safety Island. The stone is being placed on a barge and floated to Prairie Creek, the first spot to get shoreline protection. The riprapping funds were leveraged by State Sen. Keith Faber, R-Celina.
