Residents of the Peninsula subdivision on Lake Buchanan now can hopefully rest easy about their marina being able to survive the next instance of high winds whipping up high waves that lap the boundaries of the cove where it sits.

Workers this week finished a $1 million project that entailed dredging the harbor, blasting away the rock bottom to make it deeper, then building a seawall to combat the destructive waves.

“When the lake is in the condition like it is now it’s not very much fun for boating but when it comes back up and we get the marina back in place we’ll always be wet and won’t always have to be moving it in and out.” said Chad Calhoun, president of the Peninsula Property Owners Association, which paid for the project.

The Peninsula subdivision is on the east side of Lake Buchanan just off of FM 690, 4.5 miles north of where it intersects with TX 29.
