LAKE # 1 UPDATE- Fall 2018
We continue to improve Lake #1 and the areas bordering the lake.
As the weather gets cooler, we hope you get a chance to walk the new trail that runs the length of Lake #1 along Waterside. We also recently repaved the road that extends between both rock entrances to the park located at the bottom of Snake Hill.
We discussed and approved opening the lake for small watercraft but ask that you use caution. We continually find and remove submerged logs just a few feet under water. We are asking boats to respect a no-wake speed for your safety. This no-wake speed will also help protect the banks of the lake while they grow back the much-needed vegetation that helps to reduce erosion. We ask, no high-speed boating at this point.
While Lake #1 was drained for both dam repairs, we cleaned out the sediment and muck from the bottom of the lake. We also excavated the bottom of the lake making it much deeper. This results in less stagnant water and a much cleaner lake. We are pleased to report that our first water sample testing came back clean. We will continue testing the water quality on a regular basis and keep you updated on our results. We are anxious to open this lake back up again for water skiing and water sports but want to make sure that you are safe. The lake is fully stocked with small fish; however, the recommendation is to refrain from fishing for a couple of years to allow the fish to grow. We will let you know when fishing can resume.
