Fog Seal Application

9/14/22 Notice: On Thursday, September 15th starting at approx. 8:30am until completed our road contractor Ronyak Paving will be applying a fog seal treatment to the following roads: Lake Crest, Eagle Point, Owl Point, Peacock Ln, Dam Vue, and Tupelo. Please remove all vehicles and obstructions from the roadway.

Fog sealing is being performed in order to address some of the dust and tar problems that came about last year. It locks in the stone and extends the life of chip and seal.

Following application until the material dries (approx. 2 hours), all vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and pets should keep off the road surface. While we understand that this will create an inconvenience, it is necessary. Please be patient.

9/13/22 Update: Due to the rain the Fog Seal Application is once again delayed. Weather permitting this will be rescheduled this week and a notice will be sent out.

9/9/22 Update: Due to a shipping delay with the emulsion needed for the project, the fog seal application has been delayed. Weather permitting it will be applied this Tuesday, September 13th starting at 8:30am until completed.

Weather permitting, this Thursday, September 1st, our road contractor Ronyak Paving will be applying a fog seal treatment to the following roads: Lake Crest, Eagle Point, Owl, Point, Peacock Ln, Dam Vue, and Tupelo. Please remove all vehicles and obstructions from the roadway.

W4R Rockin’ at the Shores Sept 3rd

By Barb Buckley – STARS Club

Don’t they look ridiculous??  You bet, but the Waiting For Ray (W4R) band is probably five of the best most fun-loving, talented musicians you’ve ever run into.  The group is sponsored by the STARS Club and will perform bringing their party atmosphere to the Shores at the Entertainment Pavilion on September 3rd at 6:00PM. 

W4R has been a popular Pittsburgh band for many years, but you may also recognize two of the members, brothers Ray and Scott (left side), as Shores residents who spend much of their time at their family home at the Shores.  They are very entertaining to watch and they hope to see you all on the lake or at the beach to help bring the holiday weekend to an exciting close.  90’s+ rock music is the Band’s specialty and they are excited to meet you and perform at the lake for us.  W4R will take the Shore’s concert series to a whole new level.  You can learn more about them on their website at waitingforray.com.  See you there!

Sharpening Services Available Sept 3rd

On Saturday, September 3rd, the same day of the Rib Cook-Off and our last Summer Concert, from 2pm to 5pm the STARS Club will be sponsoring sharpening services by Noon Sharpening, Inc. Drop off your knives, scissors and other tools to be professionally sharpened.

Lake Algaecide Treatment Update – Part 2

This past week, we informed you about a recommendation by AquaDoc and EnviroScience for a second treatment of the algaecide. While the conditions on the lake showed no algae, the satellite data did indicate that a potential algal bloom may be forming. This was the basis of the recommendation.

This week, AquaDoc again reviewed the lake, and still found no evidence for the Harmful Algal Bloom suggested from the satellite data. Therefore, it is the current opinion that we delay a second treatment until conditions on the lake warrant the expenditure. The lake will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and a decision will be made based on the conditions on the lake as we go forwards. We will keep you updated if conditions change.

Lake Algaecide Treatment Update

This past week, both AquaDoc and EnviroScience were on the lake evaluating the conditions related to Cyanobacterial blooms. Based on their assessment, and the approaching Labor Day weekend, they have recommended that a second whole-lake treatment be scheduled as follows.

  • The Southern half of the lake will be treated during the week of August 8th.
  • The Northern half of the lake will be treated during the week of August 22nd.

Stay alert for further announcement as we approach the week of August 8th. We will evaluate the lake level to determine if additional lake lowering is necessary, as well as fix the exact dates for the application. The same restrictions for boating and swimming will be in effect and will be repeated with subsequent notifications.

Chip and Seal Update

undefined

On the week of July 18th, 3.9 miles of RRA roads were chip and sealed (15% of our roads). Last year, 4.2 miles (16%) of our roads were chip and sealed. In the past 2 years, with our limited budget, we have been able to chip and seal 31% of our roads as opposed to the less than 2 miles we would have been able to accomplish if we would have paved using asphalt.

While chip and seal does have its downsides, it is the most appropriate and cost effective method to maintain our roads. Almost every surrounding community, including the county and State utilizes it.

In order to address some of the dust and tar problems that came about last year, we have improved the quality of stone that was used this year and will be scheduling in the next few weeks a test run of fog seal on the following roads:

  • Lake Crest
  • Eagle
  • Owl Point
  • Peacock Ln
  • Dam Vue
  • Tupelo

More information will be posted prior to the fog seal’s application.
