The Roads/Water employees of the Conservancy District work at some of the nastiest jobs behind the scenes. Today, they were repairing water leaks on Beaver Drive. The Conservancy recently rented a special machine to uncover water mains for repair of water leaks.....a frequent occurance.

The Cordry Sweetwater Lot Owners Association met recently to make plans for the 2012 season. Lannie Rossman stepped forward to fill the president's chair left vacant by the passing of Georgene Settles. Other topics discussed included the coming newsletter, calendar of events, fireworks, possible new siding for the clubhouse, the library,
young peoples programs, and the Ox Roast in 2013. The CSLOA needs interested parties to step forward for some of these volunteer projects.


The recent cold spell during January has iced over both lakes. There are still open spots and the ice is not safe. Ice fishermen have been out on small lakes and ponds in the area.

For numerous years, Cordry and Sweetwater Lakes have participated in the Indiana Clean Lakes Program. (http://www.indianalakes.org) Volunteers from 82 lakes in Indiana periodically take water samples and measure the clarity of their lakes and submit the results to the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University. Quinn Heatherington samples Cordry Lake and Dave Jarrett samples Sweetwater Lake. In past years Cordry and Sweetwater always came in #1 and #2 for lake clarity. For 2012, the #1 lake for clarity is Clearwater Lake in Indianapolis! Other reults are: Clearwater Lake - Marion County - 22.6 feet/ Sweetwater Lake - Brown C
ounty - 20.6 feet/ Cordry Lake - Brown County - 20.4 feet/ Crooked Lake - Noble County - 18 feet/ Lake James - Steubon County - 13.6 feet/ Wawasee - Kusciusko County - 10.5 feet/ Maxinkuckee - Marshal County - 8.7 feet/ Lamb Lake - Johnson County - 7.5 feet/ Heritage Lake - Putnam County - 2.0 feet/
