weed barrier

TLA has now built a new and improved weed barrier and deployed it in a test sight on Big Creek Arm.  It is a 10'x10' reusable frame of 3" PVC drain pipe.  We thank TLBP for the membrane and the previous trials.  If this is successful we hope to build some for consummer use this spring.

Septic

I am taking this time to remind lake owners tha they should review their property's waste management.  Evan septic systems that have worked well can go bad without maintainence.  First do you know where your system is.  Do you know what your components are?  Do you have a maintanence schedule?  Replacement of a failed system is expensive.  Failed septic systems around the lake can be a major contributer to phosphates in the lake and therefore the dreded algae.  

Mike Mader at TLBP has offered to do a free and confidencial dye test of your system.  He can recommend further steps based on results.  For those of us raised in city this can be very helpful.

Lake Gauge

All,

I just added a button in the upper right corner of the website for easy access to the new Lake Gauge reports.  These reports are located on the TLBP main page.  For simplicity the link opens a new window with the TLBP main page.

I'd like to thank Mark Grigsby (PCI Northwest), Josh Stump (Stump Computer Services), Richard Litts (TLBP) and Mike Mader (TLBP)for their help in upgrading our gauges to a updated and stable platform!  The gauge is located at Ringo's Lakeside Marina.  The new wireless datalogger uses Ringo's wireless network and the backend processes are created and hosted by PCI Northwest and thus we achieved our goal of eliminating all recurring monthly costs! 

Finally, please note the old TLBP website is in the process of being decommissioned.  Please use the button off of this page to access the TLBP website or update your bookmarks with the following URL:  tenmilewatershed.com

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
Rachele

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.
