The three main roads in the Conservancy District were "lined" last week. The white lines on the edges will certainly help this winter on those dark rainy nights.

For those of us who travel to Edinburg, we often watch/look at the Blue River Dam as we enter the town limits. A leak in the dam appeared last week and it has the town residents concerned. The landmark dam was built in 1884 to run a water-powered grain mill. The leak appears to be about 10' long and poses no dangers downstream. For the first time in a century, water is not pouring over the top of the dam.
DNR officials have recommended that the town hire an engineer to survey damage and estimate repairs.


In business at the monthly CSCD meeting, the board voted to post a "moratorium" on all waterfront permits/construction. All permits for docks, boat shelters, etc. will not be granted until a more detailed "checklist" of requirements is authored and approved by the board. The building compliance officer, Mr. Lee, resigned his position on August 21st.


Several newsworthy items were discussed at the August 20th CSCD monthly meeting. Construction on the new office/maintenance building has begun, boat launch ramp construction is scheduled for September 15th, the annual deer reduction hunt may not happen in 2013, Cordry Lake dredging is 45% complete, fishing tournament for Atterbury military was approved and more.

IT is amazing to see the increase of paddle powered craft on the lakes. Kayaks and Paddleboards have certainly increased in popularity. One young gal passed my house on Saturday night with a goal of making it completely around the lake before dark.

Dredging is in operation at the north end of Cordry Lake. A road down to waterfront has been installed and the dredger is at work on both the north end and a cove between Alder and Aspen Drives.
