CLEARWATER RIVER WATERSHED DISTRICT

WORK SESSION

STANLEY’S RESTAURANT, KIMBALL

July 23, 2003

 

CRWD Work Session was called to order at 6:00p.m. by Chairperson John Tracy. Managers’ John Tracy, Marvin Brunsell, Virl Liebrenz, and Roland Froyen were present. Manager Klein was absent. Administrator Merle Anderson, George Anderson, and Susan Anderson were also in attendance.

 

MOTION #WS03-07-01: Motion Brunsell, seconded by Liebrenz to accept the Agenda, with the addition of George and Susan Anderson, residents of Pleasant Lake. All Managers voted aye.

 

George Anderson, resident of Pleasant Lake, stated that the current water level on Pleasant Lake is to the flow line of the culvert apron on the lake side of State Highway #24. George indicated that if that apron was at its proper level, the lake level would be lower and the bank erosion would be reduced. He asked the District to open the outlet gate more and request MnDot to lower the culvert this year. One question that George also wants answered is “how do stormwater volumes from Annandale today compare with previous years?”

 

MOTION #WS03-07-02: Motion Froyen, seconded by Brunsell to authorize that the Pleasant Lake Outlet Control be opened to maximum flow allowable under the DNR permit. All Managers voted aye.
