The existing intake was damaged during a severe winter storm and subsequent storms have further damaged the facility. The result of the storms were erosion and slope failure along the shoreline between the main intake structure and the normal pool elevation of the lake. The continued erosion put the raw water intake at risk. KSA developed design plans for a steel sheet pile wall to provide a vertical bulkhead allowing the slope of the bank to be decreased. Flatter slops protected by rock rip rap will reduce erosion potential on the flatter bank while the steel sheet pile wall protects the upper bank.
