The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District announced the project site at Prompton Lake has been reopened for public use following the completion of a 2-year construction project. The site was closed in 2010 for the project which included modifying the dam spillway, building an operations building and maintenance garage and constructing a bridge to the dam.
Prompton Lake, a flood damage reduction project consisting of an earthfill dam and reservoir, is located on the Lackawaxen River four miles above Honesdale, Wayne County, Pa., and 30 miles above its confluence with the Delaware River.
