Lakes - Salt Water Intrusion
Due to the exceptional high tides over the recent months, a greater amount of salt water has been able to backflow into the freshwater lakes. Because of this Cape Pointe, Traderâ€™s Crossing, Waterbend, West Bay, Golf Club & the POA are affected.
Therefore an engineer and underwater inspection company have been hired to inspect the water control structures and determine necessary repairs. To expedite the repairs it is planed in three stages. Stage one repairs should commence within the next few weeks.
Stage 1: Complete the minor pipe repairs, dredging and general cleaning of the pipes, head walls and flap gates.
Stage 2: This will allow us to truly check the functionality of the flap gates and then refurbish as necessary. Secondly, determine what needs to be modified and then make any changes/additions to water control structures as necessary.
Stage 3: Make major repair to culvert #4.
