The Devonwood Lower Dam was damaged by Hurricane Matthew on October 8, 2016. The Devonwood Lower Dam supports part of McFadyen Drive. Water overtopped the dam and caused some slope failure on the downstream side. Following the disaster, the City conducted an assessment of the dam to determine an estimated cost for repairs. The estimated cost to repair the dam is $2.9 million.
The City will perform a repair on the Devonwood Lower Dam, located on McFadyen Drive, to repair damage from Hurricane Matthew floodwaters.

For More Information:
The design plans for Devonwood Lower Dam have been reviewed by North Carolina Dam Safety and the City of Fayetteville. Additional comments were provided that must be addressed prior to issuance of a permit required for construction.
A comment from Dam Safety requires that the existing pipe under the dam be inspected via closed circuit television (CCTV) pipe inspection. The City is working with the design engineer to secure a contractor for this work.
