Flatrun Forebay Project

back to top

Lake of the Woods is working to implement a plan for the Flat Run area of the main lake to reduce sedimentation in the Main Lake. As of  June 2018 LOWA is currently reviewing conceptual designs for the construction of forebay. A forebay is an artificial pool of water in front of a larger body of water. The larger body of water may be natural or man-made. They may be used upstream of reservoirs or lakes to trap sediment and debris (sometimes called a sediment forebay) in order to keep the larger body of water clean.

Clubhouse Area Recreation Complex Project

back to top

The Clubhouse Area Recreation Complex Project (CARC) is a major capital project that is designed to reconstruct, renovate, update the amenities in the area of the Clubhouse. The CARC project gives our community 25 ADA-compliant parking spaces for the Clubhouse, beach, fitness center and pool. Our old beach bathrooms will be replaced and moved closer to the beach. The fifty-year old bathhouse/fitness center building will be replaced with new infrastructure that will better meet the needs of our members. The swimming pool will be replaced with a/multipurpose pool that will meet the needs of all ages, from toddlers to seniors, as well as the needs of our physically challenged members. The old snack bar for the pool will be replaced by a new snack bar serving all members using the Clubhouse beach area, not just pool users. A new basketball court will be built for our youth to replace the old court. Read the final report by clicking the link below.
