Repairing the Dam - The estimate for rebuilding the 46-year-old lake is approximately $3 million - part of an $83 million statewide backlog of major impoundment upgrades needed on state-owned dams the Commission manages. Opossum Lake is emblematic of many of those aging dams: built to the standard of the day, they are reaching the end of the useful lifespan and need reconstructed to modern safety standards. Along with Opossum Lake, the Commission has partially or totally dewatered five other impoundments across the state: Ingham Spring Dam, Bucks County; Upper Hereford Manor Lake, Beaver County; Leaser Lake, Lehigh County; Colyer Lake, Centre County; and Dutch Fork Lake, Washington County.  (2005)
