DOI Pond and Kettle Rehabilitation

Project Description: Work included the replacement of 10 existing water control structures (commonly referred to as kettles), water supply piping, drain piping, and valves at the Harrison Lake National Fish Hatchery, a 444-acre facility in a rural portion of Virginia’s Tidewater area.
