Board members shared their ideas on what we want the public to know. The berm was opened by tractor and firemen last week during a rain event.
There was discussion about a recent blog from Malia Zimmerman which contained much misinformation. Bob B did send her an email and asked her to contact him with no reply. It was felt that responding further to her would not be productive. Her information did not include steps for preventing sewage spells or dealing with the fragile ecosystem. Bob S suggested that the association should send out regular press releases that should also include a mission statement. The berm opened naturally and with some assistance during the recent storm and was open for 14 days. The opening was 150 feet wide and 4 feet deep. Right now the Lake level is down as a result of dropping tide levels. The sand has been shifting as the surf directions change and has resulted in more sand in the mouth of the canal.
Bob B has a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers for dredging of the boat ramp. It is good for 1 year. The Lake must dispose of the solids up to 25 cubic yards. Kukilakila has agreed to the dredging as long as there is no cost to them. Ron shared a “Public notice of request for permit”. Nicole sent a response letter emphasizing the importance to the Lake.
