Guests were from Lake Erie Ship Repair & Fabrication, LLC of Jefferson, OH. Mr. Joseph Crane (President) and Mr. Justin Gee (Vice President) shared with us the history of the company and presented pictures of their past construction projects.

After the meeting, questions were asked by Membership.
1. Is there a contract? – Yes

3. What about the hopper barges, how many cubic yards can it carry? – Between 6 ½ to 8 cubic yards.
4. Will the barges be painted? – Yes, the color of the barges will be red inside and out.
5. Where will the barges be put into the water? – At the boat ramp.
6. How long does it take to build the barge? – About 5 to 6 weeks.
7. Will the barges be ready for July 2014 dredging? – Yes
8. Where will you practice dredging? – Plum Creek
9. Where will the dredging start and when? – The target date is July 14th and it will be in Fishman’s Cove.
10. Why Fisherman’s Cove? – EnviroScience sampling methods from 2009 and 2011 indicated that that area had the most siltation.
11. How will we know where and when the dredging is going to be? – Times will be 8am to 3:30pm; the location will be announced on the Website, in the Email Blast, and in the Shores News.

February Lake Level Control Sub-Committee Meeting

Lake Level Control Sub-Committee Meeting Minutes
February 12, 2014

Members present include Walt Samson, Tim Langer, Todd Gress and Chairman Rick Gainar.

Meeting called to order at 2PM at the Association Office.

Items discussed:

  1. Discussion of Walt’s early work on a project to create a database for all lake measurements and samples taken over the years. Walt advises that the MS Excel spreadsheet is large and unwieldy and will require adjustments for samples captured in the past versus the future. A copy of Walt’s “Lake Roaming Rock Compendium of Lake Sampling Readings” was provided for review.
  2. Grand Lake St. Mary’s restoration activities as they pertain to internal release of phosphorus were discussed. Chemical treatment is primarily used to reduce phosphorus in order to bring the lake under control. Controlling nutrients in the watershed is their long-term goal. Dredging is employed at a rate of <1% of the lake per year solely to improve the depth in waterways for safe-boating.
  3. The recent closing of our lake drain was ordered by the Village in order to prevent the ice from coming into contact with the sewage pipe that crosses a shallow cove. Unfortunately, this brings to an end our plan to remove as much high phosphorus water after the fall mixing as possible.

Our next meeting is scheduled on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 2:00PM. Our regular meeting date is the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Association Office so mark your calendars!

Meeting was adjourned at 3:30PM
