As previously communicated, the odor at the south end of the lake has been attributed to low oxygen levels. Due to this, we have reached out to property owners at the south end for their assistance utilizing a series of aerators to help with this oxygenation problem. Additionally, we have temporarily suspended our dredging operations in the south end. Continuing to dredge while the lake water is in an anaerobic state can further harm the health of the lake, and inhibit the restoration chances.
For this reason, we have temporarily moved our dredging operation to the north end of the lake where the oxygen levels are better to minimize dredging downtime. We will reevaluate the south end in 2 weeks to see if the oxygen levels improve and we can resume dredging at the south end.
We know this is frustrating and appreciate your patience.
