LAKE SHAFER – North of the Big Monon Dredge
The dredge being used on Lake Shafer is a 12-inch dredge, which means that it has a pump with a 12-inch discharge port. In Fall 2013 and Summer 2014, this dredge will be located in the upper reaches of Lake Shafer between the Big Monon Dredge and Buffalo. It will be removing sediments coming down the Tippecanoe River. Watch for the pipeline and the bouys marking it. The pipeline is transporting the sediments to a disposal site. This project is occuring within an Idle Zone established and enforced by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Please, respect the Idle Zone.
