In order to increase the flood protection levels and reduce the risk of structural failure around a rain-soaked Lake Okeechobee in Central Florida, Bergeron Land Development replaced two water control structures along the Herbert Hoover Dike. Considered to be one of the nation’s most at-risk of failing, the 143-mile earthen structure surrounding Lake Okeechobee has been undergoing rehabilitation for more than a decade.
