We have started on work to remove Hidden Lake and dam and restore Boeing Creek. The City stopped dredging Hidden Lake in 2013 and it is expected to gradually fill in with sediment. Dam removal is needed before the lake fills in to prevent a dangerous flood risk at the lake outlet.  A plan for improvements was approved by City Council (see May 23, 2016, Staff Report): Remove the dam and lake; Restore Boeing Creek within the lake area; Eventually replace the large Boeing Creek pipes (culverts) crossing below NW Innis Arden Way; A concept design report was completed in February 2018. Project planning is finished and design is starting. Dam removal is planned for 2020, while the culverts may be replaced later.
