After DOA’s contractor, Goodfellow Bros. (GFB) installs a temporary by-pass system, they will begin drawing down water in the reservoir on February 21, 2018. GFB anticipates completing their work on July 2, 2018, but it may take another four to six weeks to conduct the final inspection and refill the reservoir..
