FINAL Lake Dam Update – June 30, 2018  

Ken Colburn,  ELLOA President

DAM REPAIR HAS BEEN COMPLETED!!

I was informed today by Greg Robison, Board coordinator for the dam repair, that our contractor completed their work yesterday. Our engineer was happy with the quality of the work performed. A little extra riprap was placed further down on the dam face. Our primary spillway boards have been put back in place and, as soon as we have enough rain to raise the water level to normal, the Board will reinstate fast boarding hours (12-5 daily). Until that time, however, fast hours remain suspended—idle speed only at all times in all areas.

  

This is really good news for all of us and I want to thank our engineering company, Commonwealth, and their lead engineer Roger Kottlowski; our contractors, J.S. McCullough Excavating of Bainbridge, who delivered 100% on their promise to expedite this repair in a quality manner; Greg Robison, Evert Yager and other Board members; and our communication team—Chris and Laura Elmore, and Eric Frash—for their countless hours and attention to the repair of our dam in a timely, efficient and cost effective manner. AND THANK YOU ELLOA MEMBERS FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND SUPPORT DURING THIS CHALLENGING SITUATION. Once again we have demonstrated that we are a strong, resilient community that will face and overcome adversity in order to preserve East Lake for many years to come. It really is a special place and a pleasure to live here.
