  • Tuttle Creek Lake announces stilling basin water drawdown for construction

    The Kansas City District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Tuttle Creek Lake wants patrons to know that construction associated with the Stilling Basin Rehabilitation project downstream of the dam, locally known as the tubes, has resumed. The first stages of work for this construction will affect the lake level in the short term as well as areas below the dam around the stilling basin and downstream river pond area. The contractor will perform partial removal and repair of the final concrete basin wall section. To facilitate this repair work, the water will be drawn down in the stilling basin by opening the water control gate at the Rocky Ford Dam, which is downstream of Tuttle Creek Dam, allowing the river pond area and river channel between the two dams to be lowered several feet.
