TLA Dinner

The TLA dinner went very well and all participants enjoyed a great meal courtesy of Ken and Julie Robbers with help from Candice Dickstein and Blume Baur.  Several items were raffled off and we had a wonderful talk on shipwrecks of Coos County by author Hana Contino.  For those who itemize taxes $20 of the $30  for the meal can be written off as a donation.

Construction notification on Lakes

Good Morning

Here is the summary of the items I brought up at the meeting that all Landowners should be aware of.

1. Currently to register your dock or to amend your registration you have to submit a Waterway Structure Registration Application. This applies if you are increasing or decreasing the size of your dock as well as if you are putting in a new dock. Part of the process is to submit the application to Coos County Planning Department (in Coquille). They will send the application to ODFW for review and comment. Most recently comment has been coming back that there are many documented and undocumented "Historic Raptor Nesting Sites" around the Tenmile Lakes system. This includes Bald Eagles and Osprey. ODFW is concerned about any activity that may disturb nesting birds. The FPA (Forest Protection Act) defines the critical nesting period of the Bald Eagle as January 1 to August 31 each year. The FPA defines the critical nesting period of the Osprey as March 1 to September 15 each year. The ODFW uses the FPA guidelines when making any determination related to construction activities. If a site is found by the contractor or the landowner during construction activities to have a nest they are to contact ODFW immediately and they will come out to conduct an inspection of the site.

2. Please be aware that the State of Oregon, Department of State Lands, In Water Work Period is July 1 to September 15 of each year. This is a guideline set by the ODFW in 2009 to protect the COHO and Steelhead runs among other fish that make our lake their home.

3. Please check that you have an up to date dock registration. If you do not know if your dock is registered you can contact the Department of State Lands. A permit for piling work or other work will not be granted if your dock is not registered.


I think that was it. I truly feel the more informed our Landowners are about their land and the regulations the better they can assist TLA in working on lake issues.

See you all soon

Fire Boat

I have been told that the fire boat is now officially ready for activity on Tenmile Lakes.  The crew is now involved with night training.  Lake owners should check with their homeowners insurance company to seee if there would be a decrease in premiums now that we have fire coverage officially on the lake.

Trash pick up

Volunteers spent Saturday August 19 collecting trash from docks of  boat access only residences.  We got a full barge load from 6 residences and hauled it to the dump.  This was to remove trash to keep it from sitting on property and potentially ending up in lake.  Thank you volunteers and we may make this an annual event if there is interest.
