  • Leavenworth Area: Eightmile Lake Dam Repair

    Construction work is in progress to repair Eightmile Lake dam. Construction equipment and an excavator are at the lake outlet. Work is being done to prevent flooding from potential breach of the dam.

    During this repair project there will be noise from the work during daylight hours — so you may not experience a typical quiet hike in that area.
