1. I am working with our dredging consultant to obtain the surveyed sediment verification for White Oaks Bay so that the MPOA can confirm that the volume of dredged sediment for WOB, as required under the dredging contract has been removed from that area.

2. The MPOA dredging contractor has de-mobilized for the winter. All dredging equipment / pipeline that will remain in the lake over the winter has been relocated to West Bay, as shown below. Winter lake users will need to exercise caution when in West Bay.

3. All winter lake users are again reminded of the presence of the rip-rap island protection around O’Brien Shoals and Wickline Island, and as always, are urged to use caution in these areas of the lake. Snowmobiler’s are also reminded that the Wonder Lake d embankment is strictly off-limits.

4. The Illinois Lake Management Association will be holding its annual conference in Springfield on February 29 – March 2, 2016. Information can be found at http://www.ilma-lakes.org/ilma-annual-conference.
