Shipley's Choice Dam Rehabilitation
The Shipley's Choice Dam is a 20 ft high earthen embankment constructed in 1980 to create an instream stormwater management pond for the Shipley's Choice subdivision. In 2006, an enlarged wet area was discovered on the dam's downstream slope prompting emergency corrective work.Further engineering evaluations determined that long term repairs would not be effective.
