October Lake Level Control Sub-Committee Meeting Minutes
October 9, 2013
Members present include Bud Tharp, Gil Kandrac, Walt Samson, and Chairman Rick Gainar. Also present was RRA Board Member Dell Rogers.
Meeting called to order at 2PM at the Association Office.
1. Walt Samson led a conversation in order to focus the work and discussions of the sub-committee. Many years of committee experience has taught Walt that nothing usually get accomplished until a goal is clearly defined.
2. A list of benefits that various bottom-withdrawal siphon systems provide is to be created so that committee members can rank the importance of each benefit. Our goal will be to detail and cost a specific siphon design that will accomplish at least the more important benefits. The design will eventually be presented to the Board for their action.
3. No report from the Lowrey/Martin work group on their investigation of the water/sewage lines that cross a cove near the dam. We will need to understand the effect a freezing, winter drawdown would have on these lines.
4. The Kandrac/Emick/Gainar work group is working to install a small model siphon near the principle spillway in order to begin sampling lake water from the approximate area in the lake where the actual siphon would draw water. The Village has given access to the work group so they can proceed. Materials have been purchased and are ready to install.
Our next meeting is scheduled on November 13, 2013 at 2:00PM. Our regular meeting date is the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 2:00PM so mark your calendars!
Meeting was adjourned at 3:45PM
