The Full Story

Dorsey Lake, located at the YMCA of the Rockies, required extensive dam reconstruction after the flood of 2013. Following repairs, heavy rains in 2014 damaged portions of the dam. Hydro Construction removed both dam embankments and imported clay fill to rebuild the dam. The existing dam crest was raised one foot in height and new clay fill with grouted rip rap was provided for the spillway into Wind River. The dam improvements were completed expeditiously so that Dorsey Lake could be made available to YMCA guests during the Winter of 2015.
