Old Business

Lake Health/siphon project/City Permit/Berm Opening There was a recent Plankton bloom but the Lake water is clear.  The algae are increasing.  There has been a large (28) die-off of large barracudas. Fish samples have been sent to the Federal Wildlife veterinarian. Nothing has shown up in the tissue. The Kamehameha School parcel has a foul odor and needs some cleaning.  Residents should contact KS.  There is also concern that the Kukilakila island may connect to shore putting nesting birds in jeopardy. This will be discussed with the Kukilakila board to see if a joint project is possible to clear some of the sediment.
The siphon project is moving along.
The 4/17 meeting with Ikaika Anderson went very well. Chris Lee, Cynthia Thielen, DOH, Parks Dept, Facilities Maintenance and Corps of Engineers all attended and agreed on a permit under the Dept of Rivers and Harbors to resume berm openings.  Bob provided a schedule of optimum dates and the first opening should be in June.  We will ask Sue to send a thank you to Ikaika.
Development of wetland property adjacent to Kaelepulu Stream Cindy reports that work on the parcel has stopped but the Army Corp has been taking soil samples.
Amendments and By-laws Re-do Sue has not had time to work on this.
Watch Officer’s report Karla sent a report from Kelo that we are getting solicitation calls on the cell phone.  Margie will check with T Mobile about this.  There have been reports of men in black coming on the Lake after hours. It is felt that they are laying nets.  Residents need to be reminded that the Lake is off limits from 10pm until dawn and all boats should have lights after dark.
