The flooding experienced two months ago managed to severely damage the trash racks (the filter grates that keep rubbish from flowing down the riser towers and downstream) on Lakes Greene and Skyline. The newly installed trash rack on Lake Shenandoah was far more robust, and stood up to the beating that the flooding waters and rubbish inflicted….
We are working on keeping those damaged riser towers clear, but there is no evidence that water flow is actually being impeded at this time, in spite of the collected rubbish. New, more sturdy trash racks have been constructed for Twin Lakes, and will be delivered and installed in the next few weeks.
Installation of those racks will involve a temporary lowering of the water level in those lakes, and we will inform you of the dates when that will happen.
Stay tuned for further updates.
