After almost 10 years of study and resident comments from all sides the Twin Lakes Protection and Rehabilitation District has a new SPILLWAY.
Water from Lake Elizabeth travels almost one mile from the Lake Elizabeth Marina Marker to the spillway. About 0.4 miles of the distance is through a narrow channel named the Lake Elizabeth Drain. Weeds and a an occasional Bog can reduce the outflow from the lakes. In times of high water and heavy rains it is essential to monitor the flow over the spillway to ensure there is no blockage on the channel. Automatic Lake Level Montoring and maybe a camera at the Spillway is needed to reduce high water due to channel blockage.
Evasive weeds such as Eurasian Milfoil should be eliminated from the Lake Elizabeth Drain channel and inspections made often.
Thank all of you who attended our annual meeting at Niko’s Saturday, September 11th to learn more about the lakes. Discussion centered on various lake issues including the status of the spillway.
As of September 20th the lake levels were about one foot below “NO WAKE” level of 794.5 feet above sea level. Please comment if you think the lake district should try to maintain the lake level about six to eight inches higher than current levels.
