To prevent water leaking around the wall below the apron of the spillway a cutoff wall was built from the corner of the dam to the North Shore boat ramp. The work was completed before the water could freeze under the concrete and rain refilled the lake fairly quickly. The funds for the repairs were available in dam maintenance reserves.
Chemical Fertilizer and Slit Threaten Dunlap Lake
Our lake is filled with potamogeton or pond weed as its more commonly known. In the thick silt in the shallow waters, phosphorus and nitrates, ingredients in lawn fertilizers, cause the plant to grow thick and fast. A flyer presented to the board by Heartlands Conservancy staff working on watershed issues said algaecides alone often are not enough, phosphorus must be reduced. Please avoid the use of lawn fertilizers and do not ever put chemicals within 25 feet of the lake.
Engineers are working on a dredging proposal and the board hopes to have something to present to the membership by the Annual Meeting in February.
The invasive water plants are expected to die off when we start getting hard freezes.
The board is working on a plan to be proactive with treatment or removal next year, but it is very hard to stop plant growth when there are such high levels of phosphates and nitrates in shallow water filled with silt.
LAWN FERTILIZERS are a primary source of the chemicals hurting our lake.
Please avoid using them and do not ever use them with in 25 feet of the water.
