A new steel gate dam on the west end of Tempe Town Lake is on schedule to be operational by Dec. 28, 2015. It will replace the current rubber bladder system at the west end. Objectives of the project are to ensure the lake’s continued success as a flood control tool, a recreation venue and an economic development center. The new dam will be a reliable and cost-effective solution that is expected to last for decades. This page provides details about the project so that community members can follow its progress.
