Public Invited to Open House on Holmes Lake Watershed

The public is invited to an open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, March 5 on projects now under way within the Holmes Lake watershed. The meeting is in the multi-purpose room at Lux Middle School, 7800 High Street.

Two projects will be discussed:
• A study has begun to evaluate the condition of the streams that drain into Holmes Lake and to identify areas of stability and water quality concern.
• Design is under way on a project that will stabilize a stream and rehabilitate a wetland along a tributary to Holmes Lake from 70th Street to Forest Lake Boulevard.

Information also will be available about the $5.5 million Holmes Lake restoration project completed in July 2006. The public will learn about steps they can take to help protect Holmes and Lincolnís other lakes and streams.

Representatives from the City Public Works and Utilities Department will be available to explain the projects and to answer questions. For more information, contact Holly Lionberger, Public Works and Utilities Department, at 441-8400 or visit the City Web site at (keyword: virtual).
