1800 Lake ends groundwater pumping

The 1800 Lake apartments at Lake & Knox stopped pumping groundwater into the chain of lakes on March 31, which was the court-ordered deadline for pumping to end as part of a settlement agreement with the city. 

The pumping started in 2011, when contractors discovered more groundwater than anticipated during construction.

Litigation involving the developer, the Park Board, and the developer’s subcontractors is ongoing.
