Sure does not look like repairs are going to begin anytime soon. Lake is draining very slowly.
I guess we shall see if we get a lake by early August. Ryan

Not a heck of a lot of change since yesterday, we'll see what tomorrow brings.
An old buoy standard in the power area makes a pretty good measuring stick...

The Contractor is finally getting to work on the Southeast shoreline. Notice how much worse
the crack has become since the water and the support it gave was removed.

The Lake level is down a couple of more inches due to evaporation.


The contractor had a loader/backhoe delivereed and there been more work done.
