SAWYERS POND IN EMMETT BEING RENOVATED

Construction crews will begin work May 11, and the project will take at least three weeks. The public will not have full access to all of the facilities at the pond during construction. Areas closed to access will be roped/fenced off or signed.

Project includes replacing the restrooms, boat launch and building pathways, so people will not be able to use those facilities during construction, but they will still have access to some portions of the pond.
