Fay Southeast transformed Coliseum Lake into a stormwater treatment facility for a 362-acre watershed. The lake originally served as a borrow pit for the construction of I-64 over 50 years ago, and in order to repurpose it, we constructed a sheet pile wall across the lake and performed dredging activities. The project helped slow the movement of stormwater and reduce sediment in the lake through the stabilization of bank erosion. Over the course of this project, workers dredged approximately 5,400 cy of lake bottom, placed 1,800 cy of wetland fill material and 4,000 tons of riprap and planted vegetation to help remove pollutants from the water before it reaches local tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay.
