  • Lake Beulah Shoreline

    The City of Lakeland is performing an erosion repair and a shoreline stabilization project on Lake Beulah as the start of an ongoing shoreline restoration and stabilization plan. The eroded shoreline area is adjacent to a multi-use path that is frequently used by citizens. The objective of the work is to repair and stabilize approximately 350 linear feet of shoreline on the south side of the lake. The work includes an erosion control methodology that utilizes organic media dredged from the lake bottom to fill liners that are placed on the lakeshore. The liners are then shaped to reconstruct the shoreline to a more natural slope and stabilize the shoreline. Once the shoreline restoration is complete, sod will be installed over the disturbed project area.  The work is scheduled to begin in January 2018 and is expected to be completed by end of March 2018.

    For questions, contact Laurie Smith, Manager of Lakes & Stormwater, at 863.834.6276.
