City to Drain Lake Minnehaha in Holliday Park

Holliday Park Cheyennecity.org

The City of Cheyenne is draining Lake Minnehaha in Holliday Park in preparation of the lake’s reclamation project. The draining process started on Tuesday, September 18.

The lake will drain through a storm water outlet located within the lake. Draining of the lake could take up to a week. “The intent is for the lake bottom to be as dry and frozen as much as possible when construction begins this winter,” said Rick Parish, Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Cheyenne. “For the safety reasons, the City is asking residents to stay out of the lake while it is being drained and while it is drying.”

The project will include lake dredging to make it deeper and include water recirculation features that will improve the lake’s water quality. The first phase of the project is estimated at $850,000. Money for this project comes from Consensus Block Grant funding. Bidding on the project will take place in late autumn with construction slated for winter.
