College Lake Dam Removal

The City of Lynchburg and the University of Lynchburg are partnering on the College Lake Dam Removal Project. Our shared vision is to remove the high-hazard dam and restore the resulting lakebed to a thriving environment where Blackwater Creek can re-emerge after more than eight decades.

The City and University will transition the lakebed into a wetlands ecosystem and learning laboratory: a place where students, residents, and tourists can study urban wetland ecology and enjoy time in nature. In the process, we will improve public safety and showcase water quality improvements in our urban environment.
