Published Sept. 30, 2014

CONCORD, Mass. A paving improvement project at Hop Brook Lake in Middlebury, Connecticut, will be completed under the terms of a $148,555.77 contract recently awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.


Work will be accomplished by Mahto Construction, Inc., of Wasilla, Ark. The contract was awarded on Sept. 22, 2014.


The work on this project involves furnishing all necessary labor, equipment and materials to remove existing asphalt and pave the Meadows Shelter Parking Area and the Pine Shelter Parking Area at the Hop Brook Lake in Middlebury.


The paving project will be managed by the Corps of Engineers and all work will be accomplished under the supervision of a Corps’ Quality Assurance Representative to assure compliance with contract requirements.

Hop Brook Lake dam, situated on the brook of the same name in the towns of Middlebury, Waterbury and Naugatuck, was completed in December 1968 at a cost of $6.2 million.  The 520-foot-long, 97-foot-high embankment can hold back 2.2 billion gallons of water in a 270-acre pool extending 1.5 miles.  Hop Brook Lake has prevented damages amounting to $108.4 million. The year-round, 21-acre conservation pool annually attracts nearly 200,000 visitors who enjoy a variety of recreational pursuits on 536 acres including picnicking, swimming, hiking, fishing, and special permit group events.
