Today the MPA President received a call from the dam owner.
The reason we’re open? My guess would be Hanna, Ike and the other potential storms of the Hurricane Season which give the dam owner a legitimate reason to open things up. Even though we still haven’t reached our summer high for waterlevel yet. Also the previous caretaker would have given the MPA a courtesy call notify us of the opening- reason and how much – so we could “let the people around the lake know.” We had a friendly working relationship with him, it would be nice if that continued with the two new caretakers. Perhaps the dam owner’s spokesman will call next week with an update.
