LAMSBD News

Melody Pickens, Secretary, Lake Asbury Municipal Benefit District

 

There could be no bigger news than Hurricane Irma. LAMSBD board members and

district engineer, Mike Kelter, came together to manage lake water levels both

before and after the storm. Mr. Kelter has requested assistance from FEMA for

storm damage. He estimates that about 10,000 cubic yards of sediment were

washed in the lakes.

On August 19, our district engineer and members of the board made repairs to the

Lake Ryan sediment trap at 762 Lake Asbury Drive. Two pallets of riprap were

stacked along the bank and around the trap. The work was completed for a fraction

of the cost of hiring the job out.

The board is working closely with Dale Smith, Public Works director, Clay County, to

identify various problems related to erosion and sediment runoff. Some of the

problem spots identified are: Hazelwood Hole (nickname for the steep finger that is

continually collapsing and pushing out sediment), erosion at the finger at 287

Arthur Moore, the dip at 166 Wesley Road, all of the smart boxes, and ditch paving

at 458 Branscomb Road.

LAMSBD welcomed new board member, Scott McCallister.

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.
