Groundbreaking set for Lake Isabella fire station

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Sequoia National Forest issued a joint announcement this week for the groundbreaking ceremony of the new Lake Isabella Fire Station, set for Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 1 p.m. at 7158 Lake Isabella Blvd.

In July, the Sacramento District of the USACE awarded a $7.75-million contract to Macro-Z Technology of Santa Ana for the relocation of the Forest Service fire station and visitors center. Construction is scheduled for completion in October 2017.

“The existing USFS facilities sit in the footprint of the 300-foot-wide emergency spillway to be built between the main and auxiliary dams as part of the Isabella Dam Safety Modification Project,” said the press release. “The station must be relocated before construction of the emergency spillway begins.”
