Lake Lure

The Town of Lake Lure, N.C., hired Glover Construction to remove sediment that had accumulated from a large rainfall event and was blocking access to the public resort area of the lake. The lake elevation was lowered 13’ to give access to the sediment before Glover began work. Glover removed more than 250,000 cubic yards of sediment using large excavators and hauled it to several different disposal sites. These sites were seeded and restored to a usable condition, and the lake was returned to its normal elevation, all well before the start of the tourist season.
