Request for Information: Lake High Water Conditions

The association is looking to collect the impact of the water damage on your residents. The information will be used to consolidate the problems and issues that lake residents are facing as a result of high water. This consolidated information will be used to show the State Representatives, State Senators, County Commissioners and Township Commissioners the magnitude of the problem that we are experiencing here at Crooked Lake. To date, there has only been individual communications to our State Reps, Senators and local governments. It is felt that a comprehensive list of resident issues would be much more impactful.

Would you please estimate the cost of your damage or efforts you have made to prevent the water damage. Please provide pertinent comments if you have them.

This data collection effort is strictly voluntary.

Please use the spreadsheet (LINK) to provide your information: LINK
NOTE: You will need to download the file to your device to be able to add content and save the file.

Please send the above requested information to Sharon Ritchie at sharrtch@mei.net . She will collect all the information and it will be shared with the State and local governments  to illustrate the extent of the problem.

 

 

 

ALERT!!! - Red Swamp Crayfish is near us

 Did you see the DNR alert about the red swamp crayfish that the DC LA just emailed? This invasive has invaded Sunset Lake in Vicksburg. A boat from this lake was recently checked at our wash station and had to be washed before it was allowed to launch. Sunset Lake is connected to several other lakes including Austin and Barton. Since opening on May 15, 13 boats from Austin have been checked at our water station. Five boats have come from Barton Lake and one of those had to be washed. This crayfish is the second new aquatic invasive species discovered this year in our geographic area. European Frogbit was the first. That's two new reasons why our water station is so necessary.
