Wow! New street lining has been completed this week in the Conservancy. Yellow lines down the middle of the roads and white edge lines down the sides makes driving safer! The Conservancy also cooperated and agreed to "halvsies" for painted lines on Nineveh Road from the county line to the beginning of the Conservancy property. This will certainly be appreciated on dark rainy nights.

It was a beautiful first day of fall on Sweetwater with 92 degree temps and the water has warmed back up to 82 degrees. During the summer I do water clarity testing for Indiana Clean Lakes program out of Indiana University by dropping a black and white Seichi Disk in the water and see how far down it goes before disappearing. I usually get readings of 17-20 feet on sunny days during the week when there is no boat traffic. The water level is down a bit but extremely clear so I decided to test for fun. The reading was 27 feet.

One of the first trees to turn colors in my area is this maple. It's only September 13th!!! I can't believe it! Perhaps the late August dry spell precipitated early colors.

The Cordry Sweetwater Lot Owner's Association annual OX ROAST a resounding success this year. There was a significant increase in booths for visitors to visit and the crowd attendance was up over past years. The success was due to a lot of work on the part of the Association members.


Church Hill at the entrance to Cordry Sweetwater Lakes was re-paved today. It is also planned to have new lines painted on Nineveh Road from the Brown County line to the top of Church Hill when the paving is completed.
