LAMSBD News (April/May 2018)

 

- Melody Pickens, Secretary, Lake Asbury Municipal Benefit District

 

Threadfin shad have recently been delivered to all three lakes. More shad will be

added to Lake Asbury and South Lake Asbury in the near future.

Chairman McMillan has been working with Commissioner Hendry and County

Engineer Dale Smith to identify problem areas including locations where county

pipes in disrepair are contributing to siltation into lake fingers. He is also working

with the county to resume cleaning the catch basins which keep debris from

entering the lake. We all need to also do our part by keeping our curbs clean to keep

the catch basins from becoming quickly overwhelmed with debris.

The sterile carp that were put into the lake to solve the hydrilla crisis have done

their job and more. They have eaten nearly every type of vegetation. At this point,

the only way to start bringing the lake into a more natural balance is to thin out the carp population. The board encourages you to harvest any carp you catch.

Dredging

Lake Asbury dredging project

In 2006 Dredge America was hired to perform the tasks associated with the dredging of both the South Lake and North Lake.  The South Lake had the greatest need for dredging for many reasons including the runoff from the dirt roads--the roads have now been paved by the county.

The LAMSBD board extended the project to include all the fingers on the North Lake when the first part of the project came in under budget.  We'd never have a better opportunity than when the dredging crew was on hand.

The spoils were been deposited and managed on the lot behind the firehouse on Branscomb Rd. and the resulting dirt was sold to partially off-set the cost of the project.

Working a finger on the north lake--the spoils are pumped through the black pipe to a containment lot.

Clearing clay from the rotor.

In addition to clay in some of these fingers, stumps were ground up and removed.  Note the large piece of stump on the dock. This means that the fingers in the lake are now deeper than their original level.
