Continuing our effort to improve water quality in Lake Luxembourg, this summer BCCD will implement a project that will:

  • Lower the lake level by approximately 3.5 ft (July 18 – December 2022)
  • Remove accumulated sediment from the conservation pool east of Woodbourne Road
  • Deposit excavated material on adjacent agricultural fields owned by the County
  • Create wetlands and wildlife habitat features on the edges of the conservation pool

The project is designed to reduce suspended solids and nutrient pollution making it into the body of Lake Luxembourg. The desired outcome is improved water clarity, less frequent algal blooms, and an overall improvement to the lake ecosystem. The project is funded by the County of Bucks, along with grants from the Environmental Protection Administration, PA Department of Community and Economic Development, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Join us for a public meeting on June 6, 2022 at Pavilion 11, Core Creek Park, Langhorne. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions and Approximate (lowered) Shoreline here.
