Four Lakes Task Force negotiated an access agreement with Boyce Hydro Power, and got a limited stay from the bankruptcy court, for the four dams the week of October 12.
During the summer season after the May 2020 flood events, many of the exposed bottomlands of the former Wixom Lake and Sanford Lake as well as some of the connected streams and other lakes have become densely vegetated, from the natural seed bank in the exposed soil. Vegetation is a highly effective means of stabilizing sediments and preventing further erosion or scouring of these areas.
The Four Lakes Task Force (FLTF) has received a grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to remove the debris pile at Sanford Dam, and will begin doing so in the coming weeks. FLTF will inventory recovered items that have distinguishing marks (owner’s name, registration number, etc.) and contact property owners to let them know that they can pick up their recovered item.
