Tempe Town Lake To Be Closed Temporarily
December 1, 2015
TTL TO BE CLOSED -- Replacing the current inflated rubber Tempe Town Lake dam with concrete and steel will shut down the lake - probably next spring - for a period the city estimates will be more than one month. The news came from Tempe Senior Boating Coordinator Alicia Jerger, saying the new concrete and steel dam will be finished in "February or March," depending on weather delays. At that point, the city will divert the TTL water and, she says, "It is anticipated that refilling of Town Lake, mostly using water-exchange credits, will begin one month after the water is diverted. Tempe Town Lake will be closed to boating and water recreation once the water diverting has begun."
