4.e. Dennis Waak Dam Repair Assistance Request
Rationale

Dennis and Karen Waak were present to discuss concerns about his private dam.   Director Bailey presented some pictures to show the dam issues as attached,  The vertical overflow tube is rusted through, causing the erosion. The concern is that the erosion will continue and ruin the horizontal drain tube as well.  Their structure is close to the start of the Neiman ditch that goes along the north side of Schuyler and drains into it directly via county road ditches.  

The Waak's have hired an engineer to evaluate the structure damage and repair and has contacted  some contractors for the possible repair.  After more details are available, the Waak's will return to the Projects Committee to discuss possible assistance for their project.

4.f. Off Site Water Table Problems near Sand Creek Wetland
Rationale

As earlier reported, for three years we have received comments on impacts to neighbors next to the Sand Creek Wetland.  The Board voted to move forward with obtaining proposals from professionals to make an independent assessment of damages and we have received two for committee review and potential recommendation to hire one.  The committee reviewed the proposals and discussed obtaining more detailed information pertaining to the landowner acres and tiling costs that might be involved to remedy the situation.

After reviewing the two proposals the committee felt that we should return to our first approach to this problem and that is to meet with the individual landowners and ask what they felt it would take to make them whole, including the number of acres effected and the best solution.  It appears that the cost to hire a consultant may approach 50% of the cost for a solution.  

Recommended Motion

To table a decision on the off site Water table Problems near the Sand Creek Wetland until more specific details are obtained to include total acres affected and costs to correct the situation

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  To table a decision on the off site Water table Problems near the Sand Creek Wetland until more specific details are obtained to include total acres affected and costs to correct the situation passed with a motion by Bob Clausen and a second by Dave Saalfeld.
