Editorial: Fixing Langley Dam a priority despite hefty cost

Feb 5, 2016

Editorial: Fixing Langley Dam a priority despite hefty cost Feb 5 2016 12:01 am Staff photo by Dan BrownJoe Monroe, project engineer with Schnabel Engineering out of Alpharetta, Georgia, said Tuesday it would cost the County $13.5 million to repair Langley Dam. Aiken County officials were on the receiving end of bad news this week, following the announcement that Langley Dam repairs could cost the County nearly $14 million – almost twice as much as the County expected. In the fall of 2014, County officials closed the dam to the public and any future water activities after a resident noticed water bubbling up toward the top of Langley Pond near the dam’s spillway. In a work session this week, County engineers told officials the $13.5 million price tag could be mitigated by an $8 million federal grant, with a 25 percent, or $1.5 million match by the County. However, that figure still falls $5.5 million short of the proposed repair cost. The dam is old – built more than 125 years ago – and its adjoining spillway passed retirement at least 10 years ago. The County can chip at the price tag, including cutting the $500,000 cost of the pedestrian bridge spanning the dam and other modifications. But as the dam and its spillway continue to age as every day passes, dragging the cost dilemma through work session after work session won’t lessen the need for repairs to the dam and its spillway anymore. Repairing Langley Dam now would preserve it for the next two or three generations at least, and return Langley Pond to its glory days when it served as a practice kayak and rowing venue for the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics. To repair the dam, Aiken County has two choices – bite the bullet and get it fixed, or not. Responding to the proposed price tag by Joe Morris, of Schnabel Engineering, Council member Kathy Rawls said the County needs to dig in and root through the proposal and weed out what is not necessary. The County needs to do that, though, in a timely fashion. While a $13.5 million cost, or even the $12 million “workable” cost County Administrator Clay Killian mentioned isn’t ideal for officials or taxpayers, the County knows what it must now do to fix the dam and must work quickly to mitigate any future problems the dam could bring the County before its full repair. Leaving the dam to Mother Nature won’t mitigate the potential problem that Langley Pond could pose. Draining the pond could expose chemical residue from the days when it served as a retention pond for the 30 textile mills surrounding it. And the cost to clean the bottom of the pond could be twice what engineers proposed to repair the dam. To echo what outgoing County Council member LaWana McKenzie, whose district covers Langley Pond, said Tuesday: “The price tag for the repairs was hefty, and a shock, but we’ve got to do what we have to do to get this fixed.” Keywords
