The East Bay Regional Park District is hosting its first Jewel Lake Study public workshop via Zoom. The workshop will present the project to the public including site history, four developed conceptual plans aimed at meeting the project goals, and other work to-date completed for the Jewel Lake Study. There will be an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions, learn more about the process and the conceptual plans, and gain understanding of the study overall.
Jewel Lake, constructed in 1921 with an earthen dam across Wildcat Creek, has served generations of park patrons and provided habitat to native wildlife. The dam also traps large quantities of sediment that build up over time, reducing the lake’s depth and volume and affecting public enjoyment and the wildlife that call it home. The current dam and lake also prevent rainbow trout from migrating upstream. The purpose of the study is to develop a preferred concept to move forward into design and construction, depending on available funding.
