FLPOA/IWPUD – Debbie Weaver
Debbie reported on the weed situation. There is a harvester at work on the lake. Bettianne reported that the harvester operated reported that they had never seen such thick growth. No information was available for the cost. Fairview sent residents a letter advising that Fairview would not be providing any financial assistance. The next step is unknown at this time. It is suggested that Jim Graybill be invited to the next meeting. Bettianne advised that FLPOA will be having their annual meeting in October, so more information will probably be forthcoming.
Devil’s Lake Water Improvement District may be a good source of information, as they have a similar situation. SCUBA dredging was also a potential.
Curt reported that Blue Lake is looking better than ever. Clarity is great, and crawfish are returning. Weevils seem to be working. The most recent application was in June. It was Bettianne’s opinion that due to successful environmental programs upstream, the water coming into the lake is cleaner and contributed to a clearer lake.
Allen will invite Jim to the next meeting.
Still working on water rights with wells 1, 2 and 3. Pipes were broken and were repaired.
Blue Lake Commissioner – Curt Knight
The weed situation is the best Curt has seen in 47 years, and there have been no algae bloom. Testing that took place during the few days of cloudiness indicated that there was no toxic bloom. He believes the health of the lake is outstanding. The 4th Solar Bee may be contributing. The new Solarbee is being loaned to Blue Lake gratis. It is unknown what the 4th solar bee bill
There seems to be a larger crop of water lilies on Blue Lake. It was noted that cutting off the leaves may help control them.
Boat regulations seem to be working and the boat patrol is doing a good job. The boaters have been good this year.
