SoCal’s Pyramid Lake to Open After Sediment Removal
Fri April 18, 2008 - West Edition Construction Equipment Guide
GORMAN, Calif. (AP) The California Department of Water Resources plans to reopen popular Pyramid Lake following a 45-day closure for removal of sediment.
The state said April 2 that the lake 60 mi. north of downtown Los Angeles will open again on April 5.
During the closure crews lowered the lake about 23 ft. (7 m) and removed 32,000 cu. yd. (24,460 cu m) of sediment that accumulated around a U.S. Forest Service dock over several decades.
The lake and its dam were completed in 1973 as part of the State Water Project. It holds water for Los Angeles and other cities. The name came from a pyramid-shaped rock carved out during construction of old Highway 99.
