Nearly 3 years since the 2008 June flood, repairs have begun on the East Lake Dam located in Prince's Lakes. Placement of a large siphon began today in preparation for lowering the water level in East Lake. A new spillway system is to be constructed.

The past week's rains have kept the lakes at high levels. Cordry was on "yellow light" status for several days but is now "green." Sweetwater was on "yellow" the previous week and actually went "red" on March 5th-6th. Sweetwater is still on "yellow light" status as of this post. Pictured is the flow from Sweetwater spillway.

We're turned on! The new cell phone tower is finally in operation. All of a sudden, I was receiving calls when crossing Sweetwater Dam. Sources have told me to dial *228 and hit "update roaming" to improve cell phone performance. Now it's time to shop for that new I-phone!

The main lake is ice free although there is still a thin skim in some coves. A few boats have been out although the yellow light has been on due to high water levels on Sweetwater. A local volunteer cleaned out the Martin bird house located on the point at the beach today getting ready for the spring return of the Martins.
