DEP Hosts Feb. 22 Meeting On Broomall Lake Dam Breach Project In Delaware County

The Department of Environmental Protection will host a public meeting on February 22 to discuss the partial breach project of the Broomall Lake Dam located on 3rd Street in Media Borough, Delaware County.
The high hazard dam is in a state of disrepair and its current condition is considered to be unsafe. Upon completion of the partial breach, the potential threat to downstream residents will be reduced significantly.
The project is scheduled to begin with turtle relocation on or around April 15, 2017 and proceed for two weeks, at which point construction will begin with a 60-day timeframe for completion.
The meeting will be held in the Parlor Room of the Media Borough Municipal Building. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., at which time guests are invited to view construction plans until the meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.
DEP staff will provide an overview of the project and answer questions from the public.
This project will be funded through previously reserved funds, currently managed by the Department of Transportation.
Questions should be directed to Virginia Cain, DEP, 484-250-5808.
