~ THANK YOU ~
Special thanks to Mike Bates and Mark Wertman for "donating" their time and efforts to maintain the landscape of our Dam allowing the Lake Cadjaw Watershed Association to abide by the specifications set by the PA DEP. It is greatly appreciated year after year!
Also, another very special "thank you" to Mike Bates for his tireless efforts to help the Association in any way he can. Notification was recently received from the DEP that their recent inspection of our Dam revealed that multiple animal burrows were found on the downstream face of the dam. This notice further stated that the burrows should be excavated and properly backfilled, and to prevent reoccurrence, the Department also recommended that the animals be relocated or eradicated. Mike filled in the holes with the appropriate material and placed traps on the dam so that the animals could be relocated without harm. As of this writing, there have been no signs of varmints in the area of our Dam. Additionally, Mike continues to be very diligent year after year performing and documenting piezometer readings on a routine basis. The Board appreciates Mike's willingness to be involved with the preservation of Lake Cadjaw.
