Some Quick Updates, Dec. 1, 2015

Short, quick blog today.  I just want to mention a couple of updates on projects that are underway right now. . . .

Conestoga Reservoir

Our long-awaited Aquatic Habitat Rehabilitation project at Conestoga Reservoir near Denton finally got underway this fall.  Now this project is going to take some time, work will probably be ongoing over this entire next year, but water levels are low enough that progress is already being made this fall.  Now, I do not understand all the details, but there has been some work on the existing outlet structure, and low-level outlet.  I believe pumping to lower the water even farther is continuing.

Lake Wanahoo

A couple of weeks there was a “heads up” on the road paving being done on the west side of Lake Wanahoo just outside of Wahoo.  Access to the west side of Lake Wanahoo, including all access to the camping and boat ramp areas has been closed while that road work is being done.  Again I do not have all the details, but word is that work will be completed later this week and the west side of Wanahoo will be open.

That is all for now.
