The City of New York's Parks and Recreation Department needed to dewater
Kissena Lake in Queens in order to do naturalization work. Since they also
needed to avoid killing aquatic life, they used AquaDams® to divide the lake
in half and dewater one portion at a time.
A string line was erected across the lake to provide a visual guide for the installation crew.
The first AquaDam® and the pumps are put in place.
The AquaDam® is started well up the bank to ensure that it will be able to fill completely.
