Work crews spent Wednesday repairing docks and piers on Bangs Lake in Wauconda that were damaged by the harsh winter.
For the past few days, Rollins Aquatic and Pro-Tech Marine have been installing and repairing docks at Lindy's Landing, while the Wauconda Park District has been doing the same at the Wauconda Beach and Marina.
"The ice really damaged the piers and docks," said Rich Rollins of Rollins Aquatics. "The ice bent the posts in half."
Technicians removed dock posts that were S-shaped as they came out of the water due to ice that was more than two-feet thick on the lake this past year.
They hope for the docks to be open on May 1.
