WATER LEVEL STUDY 2022

DEAR SIX MILE LAKE ASSOCIATION MEMBER YOU’RE INVITED!!!

This presentation involves the water level issues your board has been actively involved in for the past few years.

Please make plans to attend. Details are below and it would be nice if Six Mile Lake had a good number of members in attendance.


Chain of Lakes Water Level Study – July 12

Come learn more about the Water Level Study that was done on our chain of lakes!

The US Army Corps of Engineers just completed a multi-year project to develop a hydrological model of water movement through the chain of lakes for Antrim County and the Lake Level Committee of the ERCOL. The model is the largest and most complex model the Detroit District of the USACE ever developed. It can be run using both actual or assumed precipitation events and actual or altered physical geometry such as for the channels of connecting rivers or structures like bridges and culverts in order to better understand storm water impacts, identify management opportunities to reduce nuisance flooding or to predict the movement and accumulation of sediment.

Three Lakes Association invites you to find out about what we learned during the development of this model and what needs to happen to begin using this modeling capability for a variety of goals, during a set of presentations on Tuesday July 12 at 5 pm at Central Lake Schools Multi-Purpose Room. The Multi-Purpose room is in the Central Lake Middle/High School, 8169 West State Street, Central Lake. Please use the Howard Street entrance.

Presenters will include: Mark Stone, Antrim County Operator of Dams, Dave Christian Co-chair of the Lake Level Committee, and Fred Sittel, President of Three Lakes Association, who helped monitor lake levels on the chain over the past three summers.

Immediately following the presentations, we will head to Thurston Park for a social reception with our lake protection partners. Neighboring Lake Associations and non-profits will have information tables. There will be complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks and appetizers. It will be a beautiful summer evening to socialize and discuss next steps for utilizing the model to better protect our waterfront properties and the ecological integrity of our waterways.

We hope to see there!!
