I went to the meeting and the news was not good in my opinion. You probably know about the fish kill last year which severely affected the striper population and several questions from the small crowd that attended were not answered in my opinion. They explained that due to the abundance of rain in 2018 the lake had to be lowered. Also when looking at the water level that the oxygen was concentrated in it was about the same level as the dam intakes for generating power. When asked why the Corp could not release the excess from the top (flood gates) we were told they were in the business of selling power. If the water is that much over their desired level why could they not see this in June or July and release it before the oxygen level reaches the critical lowest point of the year or wait until November when the level is not critical. Also, they could generate on a normal schedule such as the average of the past ten years and sell this amount then release the excess thru the flood gates. I will be happy to post other discussions at the meeting if you want to hear such as oxygen lines but you might have heard already and I donít want to bore you. I do plan to post more on fb
