Timberlake Watershed Improvement District

Timberlake Watershed Improvement District (WID)

The Robert E. Lee Soil & Water Conservation
District support the Timberlake WID. This WID was
established to work with homeowners above the lake
and make them aware of their roles in protecting
water quality. The District sees this WID as a
model for other watershed improvement districts.

WID 2015 Annual Report

The Timberlake Dam is classified as a high hazard dam. The new dam safety regulation’s rain fall predictions issued in March this year require the emergency spillway to be increased by approximately 16% to meet spillway design requirements. The Timberlake Homeowner’s Association (THA) is contracting with Hurt and Proffitt Engineering to implement a 3-phase, 5-year project to bring the Timberlake dam spillway into compliance.

Phase I is the conceptual design of the spillway, Phase II final design and method of financing, and Phase III will be the construction of the spillway. Project completion is targeted for 2021. VA DCR Dam Safety Division is receptive to the 5-year plan.

In conjunction with this project THA is developing dredging plans to remove sedimentation from two of Timberlake’s tributaries. It is feasible the Timberlake WID could become the funding mechanism for these projects.

The THA Board of Directors established a Timberlake Watershed Improvement District committee composed of landowners within the WID boundary. Additionally, the THA Board of Directors will provide a list of candidate recommendations to the R. E. Lee Board of Directors and the Soil and Water Board to fulfill the open vacancy for the third Timberlake WID trustee.
