Horseshoe Lake Dam Breach
A contractor for the City of Shaker Heights will start an emergency dam breach on November 1 south of the stone observation deck at Horseshoe Lake. Crews will remove a chunk of the dam to flow collected water out to Doan Brook in order to stop the lake from overflowing. Everyone is asked to stay away from this area for the duration of the project as there will be large machinery entering and exiting. The walkway across the observation deck remains closed to the public. This project is anticipated to take six weeks.
