Centennial Park Area Silt Impoundment Areas

This was the first area to receive dredge silt. There were many silt impoundment areas developed here in stages.  Near the end of the dredge program, an area south of the present Tenth Avenue through the park was repeatedly filled, then trucked away to be used as fill elsewhere. The end result of filing this area with lake bottom silt permanently changed the area from that of a low lying grassy, slough area through which water flowed in and out of the lake, to what it is now.

This is a work-in-progress. If you can help determine the size and shape of this containment area, please contact webmaster@wgtn.net.
