Channel Dredged

Carlos – Le Homme Dieu

The LCAA Board spent the winter working to complete the long overdue channel dredging of the Carlos/Le Homme Dieu channel.  Challenges with buried utilities, including the ALASD sewer line, electrical power lines, and gas lines buried in the channel made it a difficult project.  Everyone connected with the project was happy with the result and it should serve lake residents and visitors for many years to come.

LCAA board member Bill Verschaetse worked with the DNR for permitting and authorization, and Ferguson Brothers Excavation completed the project on May 7, 2017.

The Le Homme Dieu, Darling, and Geneva Lake Associations joined LCAA in financing the cost of this project.  Douglas County Public Works provided logistic support.

The lake association will now turn their attention to the Carlos/Darling channel.  It too will need dredging at some point.  Douglas County Public Works will deal with some structural issues involving the bridge before the project moves forward.

As we send out our membership dues notice, we ask that everyone on the lake renew their membership and make an additional contribution for channel dredging projects.
