PURVIS, Miss. (AP) - Bids to repair a pair of diminished dams in the Lake Serene system are expected to be let next month, though Lamar County will have to do it with three contracts instead of two.

Engineer Don Walker tells The Hattiesburg American (https://hatne.ws/1mC9SMD ) on Thursday that the work needed to repair the Oak Grove Lake dam will extend into the county’s right of way atop the earthen barrier.

The project is expected to run between $1.3 million and $1.5 million.

Bids also are expected to be let for a filtration system at the North Lake Serene dam to correct water flow issues that created tiny, vertical columns of water known as “boils” that erupted from the sandy soil.

Walker said the estimated cost for system would run about $200,000.
