01 August 2014: So much for repairing the dam!

IMG_20140801_123916According to the Clary Lake water level order today is the day that Paul Kelley was supposed to have completed repairs to the dam and installed a publicly-visible water level gauge. As you can see from these pictures taken just a little while ago, he hasn’t even bothered to cut the tree down that is growing out of the dam let alone actually effect any repairs to the dam. Of course, I’m not surprised since Kelley has yet to do ANYTHING substantive to comply with any requirement of the water level order. Here is the specific section of the Order that relates to today’s deadline:

6. A permanently mounted lake level gauge shall be installed on the Clary Lake Dam by the owner of the dam. The gauge must be marked in tenths of a foot and placed in a publicly visible area on the upstream face of the dam near its outlet. The gauge shall be placed such that the normal high water line, as determined by the procedures outlined in Condition #3, corresponds to an elevation of 0.0 on the gauge. This measurement will be used as a benchmark for observing water level changes and may be used for measuring the height at which the dam gate must be opened above its invert. Provided that the normal high Water line has been established in accordance with Condition #3, the gauge must be installed immediately following completion of the dam repairs as described in Condition #2 or by no later than August l, 2014, whichever comes first.

IMG_20140801_124030Sounds pretty clear to me, but then what do I know? I haven’t heard anything about mediation that is supposed to have started last Tuesday, July 29th. As soon as I find out anything, I’ll post it here.
