Development, Improvements, and Enhancements
The City of Lewistown "the City" proposes to drain East Fork Reservoir to allow repair of the damaged gate stem on the upstream face of East Fork Dam. At normal pool the gate will be opened with a die collar overshot tool or with divers. The City proposes to lower the reservoir about one foot per day during a one month low-flow period. Once the reservoir is drained the gate stem will be modified and reinstalled. The City was told several years ago by the DNRC to repair the gate for compliance with the Dam Safety Act. This gate allows the city to drain East Fork Reservoir below the normal pool. Repair of the gate will bring the City into compliance with Dam Safety Act Requirements.
