dep-logo-customLate this afternoon, the Department of Environmental Protection issued a draft water level order for Clary Lake.

According to the cover letter accompanying the order, interested parties have until the close of business Monday, December 30 to submit written comments.

[ORIGINAL] Draft Clary Lake Water Level Order  (2.0 megs)

A few people have had trouble sucking down the file due to the size.  By sacrificing some image quality I’ve managed to reduce the file size to a mere 832 K:

      Are you getting an error message and if so, what is it? It loads OK for me… it is a big file, over 2 megabytes so it might take a while and your browser may choke on it. I’ll try breaking it into a few pieces.

    Woohoo! The dam must be repaired and the lake level is to be maintained within 2 feet of the established normal high water mark!!!!! Water in our lake again!!!!

      Yes. It is essentially what we asked for, and what I expected 🙂

      I’m still mulling over the precise wording of items 1 through 10 of the order on pages 11 through 16.

      My phone almost hasn’t stopped ringing since about 4 PM this afternoon 🙂

      Thank you Bob! This marks a significant milestone in our quest for a resolution to the Clary Lake water level mess. There is however much work ahead. We’re not out of the woods yet. Your continued support is appreciated.

      Now that your first comment has been approved, future comments should appear automatically.

    Looks like Kelley has yet more responsibilities to handle now. So sad that he couldn’t figure out the intelligent way to do all this, years ago.
