Current NEWS​

  • Preliminary Budget and Appropriation: The preliminary budget and appropriation was accepted at the May 13th RCD meeting and a public budget hearing is set for June 17th at 6:00 p.m. Click here for a copy of the preliminary budget.

  • Algae bloom: As some of you have noticed, our lake has its annual algae bloom. I have talked to Joe Rush, RCD Lake Biologist and sent him several pictures from around our lake. His comment was; it looks like a green algae bloom. Our lake normally tends to flush well after we get some rains and the wind we are getting will help. The RCD will continue to monitor it. Thank you for your patience.
    Bill Winebaugh, RCD President.
