SLPOA & SLMD news

    

Standley Hogan left his mark. Neighborhood progenitor Standley Hogan left this signature October 2, 1989 along with his caricature. You can find this on the east side of the Hartner #2 spillway across the West Tennessee Creek. Apparently he poured concrete on that day.




The SLMD is trying a plan to allow The Hartner 2 (H2) ditch to flow under the solid ice for the duration of the winter. This approach, if successful, will allow us to begin May 1 under 'flow through state'. The opposite approach is to let the lakes run down, to empty out, then requiring very expensive fill water to get the lakes 'topped off'. Top-off water can require as much as 10 or more acre feet of water, at $200-300 per acre feet, it get expensive. So, get the lakes full, and keep them that way. 






    As usual, please let me know any changes to the email distribution list. Ala individual conversations, there is a unanimous consensus that the yearly Sylvan Directory NOT be posted online, and instead sent individually (to protect against 'marketers', 'political pollsters' and other lower forms of life).

The Engineering firm  TZA of  Lakewood Colorado has been chosen as expert consultant in the Legal, Engineering and Procedural process for getting water into our lakes, and MCS for our water related legal expertise. Mssr. Steve Monson & Ryan Farr (MCS) of the legal world and the engineering expertise of Tom Dea & Nathan Baker (TZA), highly experienced experts in the Colorado Water world. We are deeply concerned with both the short term and long term solution to this effort. In the short term, some sort of 'lease' is being considered and in the long term, we need to buy water shares.



A Family of 4 male moose's has been seen next door by the Webster Gravel Pit area.

It is time to begin preparation for 'first snow fall' burns in controlled pits who have Lake County permits for burning that have been inspected by the fire department and approved.


The CO State Forestry Service (CSFS) seedling tree nursery program provides seedlings such as Aspen, Engelmann Spruce, White Fir, Blue Spruce and more. Current estimated price is $75 for 30 seedlings. Aspen is NOT considered a ‘fuel’ tree by CSFS & The Insurance industry in general (check with your specific home insurer and their policy) and therefore can be within the critical ‘zone 1’ immediately near your home. To learn more about the CSFS program go to:

1. Use at your own risk
