WFRM Reports
There’s water in Lyman Lake!

After about 8 years after the dam at Lyman Run was intentionally breached due to safety concerns, the new dam was dedicated in a ceremony earlier today.

Park Manager Chip Harrison implored attendees to do a rain dance so the filling can be completed ahead of schedule. Harrison explained there are two more fill cycles before water starts going over the dam.

Many summer activities are expected to resume within a few weeks. The park is sporting new flush toilets, ho
t-water water showers and improved campsites.

Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Michael DiBeradinis was among a host of officials attending and said the rebuilding of the dam is a perfect example of how a community can come together to get a job done. He said the cooperative effort is the envy of many park officials across the entire country.

Many speakers congratulated the park’s visitors, neighbors and community members who put the pressure on Harrisburg to have the county’s number one tourist destination re-opened. The project was truly a bi-partisan effort, spanning three administrations, two Republican and the current Democratic administration under Governor Ed Rendell; and three boards of county commissioners.

Former Commissioner Chairman Ken Wingo related how his first board learned of the plans to drain the lake shortly after taking office. Former Commissioner Cathy Bowers lauded the team effort in accomplishing the goal of rebuilding the dam and said its completion will be an important cornerstone in the current tourism plan.
