● Water Advisory Report – Rick Richbourg:
● WAB meeting postponed until next Wednesday 9/27/17 @ 5:30
● FWC (Ed Harris) contact and county Liason (Melissa Lavigne) did bio survey on LH plant population.
Current area treatment for Illinois Pondweed is 10 acres, just increased to 13 acres. Focusing on main
corridor for navigability.
● Budget approved for county street sweeping and CB cleaning (BMP’s) to reduce bio-waste in lake
● Attended Lk Jessamine WAB meeting. Compromise and communication with State and WSIA over
negligent boating practices discussed.

Secretary’s Report: – Rhea Cammenga

● Conway/ Belle Isle currently dealing with same negligent boating practices. Currently has a city “No Wake”
ordinance to protect property and wildlife due to post-storm water levels. BIPD confirmed that it is enforceable
Water conservation efforts remain important; water treatment plants dealing w/ overwhelming amount of effluent.
● Contacted Lisa Lotte at CoOrl regarding water level monitoring station at N end of lake. Confirmed that
equipment is there, but not functioning and will not be online until further notice.
● Discussion regarding making LH a “No Wake” zone until water subsides to a normal high water level.
● R Richbourg: Motion to petition County / Pete Clark for County ‘No Wake” ordinance, M Holder 2nd motion
● B Worden: Motion to table petition to County (above), RCammenga 2nd motion. Theory is that lake levels would reduce before the Ordinance could be passed and that enforcement would be an issue. In the interest of keeping the neighborly demeanor, continue to spread the word about the damage wakes cause in high water and request that the advisement of No Wake be followed.
