The Arrowhead Cove pilot dredging project at Deep Creek Lake has been completed. This project involves the removal of accumulated sediment from the lakebed, revitalizing the waterbody, providing greater boater access, and preserving its ecological integrity.

The first load of sediment was removed from Arrowhead Cove this morning, 12/1/2023. Main cofferdam and turbidity curtain was fully installed on Wednesday and Thursday. Project is well on its way.
We will keep a close eye on all aspects of sediment removal, dewatering, water pumping, and effectiveness of the cofferdam before Brookfield raises the water levels back to the upper rule band.
Brookfield will be raising the Deep Creek water levels to 2458’ beginning at the end of the day on Thursday, December 7. This is about a 1.5’ increase to where water levels have been for the last three weeks.
