Also, please provide us with updated email and mailing address information whenever they change.
Outlet Dam. We will continue to monitor the situation with the outlet dam near the junction of Highway 53 and County Rd 23 (Nett Lake Road) south of Orr, including continued dialogue with the DNR whenever possible about the runout level, lake water levels, leaving the “hole” in the dam permanently closed (versus closing the hole each spring and reopening the hole each late fall), and the development of some type of management plan for the dam and all stakeholders. Despite the Board's efforts, depending on water levels and the flow (if any) of water over the dam, the DNR seems to be set on opening the hole in the late fall and closing the hole in the spring. The hole may not have been closed during 2016 due to the flow of water of the top of the dam's weirs. In early December 2016, water was again running over the top of the dam's weirs.
