Hoopes Reservoir Project,
Wilmington, DE

The City explored options for improving the safety of the dam and upgrading to meet current engineering standards.  Improvements included increasing the size of the small stilling basin below the dam, reducing the velocity of water flowing into the stilling basin, and building a stone-lined channel to direct discharging water. The City also decided to increase the dam’s level to address New Castle County’s drinking water needs.

In 2006, HFA managed the public outreach campaign to educate the surrounding community about these proposed changes. In August 2006, HFA facilitated a Public Information Meeting, where over 70 neighbors attended to learn more about the improvements and how environmental issues were addressed. Construction on this $3.6 million improvement project is planned for 2008.
