Lake Thompson outlet has been cleaned out

Posted

After a year and a half of effort to overcome bureaucratic red tape, the outlet at Lake Thompson has been cleaned of vegetation and sediment.

While staying within the strict requirements of DENR to prevent downstream flooding and to protect the legally defined outlet hard bottom, we have still significantly increased the discharge below the outlet.

There are some immediate benefits due to the increase, but the more important benefit is that the cleanout will allow future floodwaters to disperse downstream faster.

Thanks and gratitude to the Kingsbury County Commissioners for their support and to the great number of citizens who donated the funds to finance the project.
