UNDERWATER STUMP REMOVAL


 Last year the services of JH Professional Tree Service were utilized to remove many under water stumps around the lake.  We concentrated primarily on the  marked boat channels.  Good progress was made, and several stumps were removed from the main channel as well as Flag, Bee & Cobb Branches. 

 Additional stumps have been identified over the past year, and those have been marked with floating jugs labeled “Stump”.  That company will be out again in the later part of September to continue cutting stumps for both CCWC, and any lot owner that may wish to participate. 

In addition to the few remaining stumps that have been identified in a marked channel, this year I am concentrating on removing stumps that have rebar sticking out of them.  Please refrain from driving rebar into any stump, as it poses a significant safety hazard for water craft.  Although I think we have a good handle on the remaining stumps in marked channels, there will always be one or two more that I just didn’t see.  Please don’t hesitate to notify me, or the office if you strike one while underway.

 I don’t mean to sound like a broken record, but the lake level is beginning to drop quickly.  While on boat patrol this past weekend, I hit a few stumps and saw several just below the surface.  Please be careful while enjoying the upcoming holiday weekend.  Many stumps are just below the surface now.  If you strike one at speed, it could cause significant damage to your watercraft.             

Lot owners wishing to have a stump(s) removed from around their boathouse, or to clear a path out to the main channel should mark those stumps with a floating marker of some sort labeled “Stump”.   The cost will be the same as last year, $150. per stump.   Stumps should be clearly marked by September 21st for those that want to participate.  Please contact Melissa at the CCWC office, 979-828-2907 or me at 979-595-3381 to be added to the list, ask questions, and payment information.         

Regards,
Ralph Crum

BURN BAN STILL IN EFFECT!!!!!

Effective immediately, the burn piles on both Riley Greed Rd and Clyde Accord Rd are CLOSED!  Signs have been put up, but some residents/contractors have continued to utilize the site.  We cannot burn these piles while under a burn ban.  If the burn pile gets too large it becomes dangerous to burn and can easily get out of control.  These burn piles are there as a convenience to our lot owners.  Failure to abide by our use rules could cost ALL residents and Camp Creek the right to have burn piles. If  you see someone dumping in a CLOSED burn pile please remind them, get their license plate and description of the vehicle and report it to the office.  Contractors will be traced back to the owners. 
 
The burn pile off C Hoppess Rd is still OPEN until full.  When it is closed with a sign, no more dumping until the burn ban is over.
 
Being able to keep our burn piles is NOT totally under Camp Creek’s authority.  We must abide by both Robertson County rules and TCEQ.  Please do not slow down our office by calling to just talk about this.  Call only if you have something to report.

​Thank you for your cooperation.

Vegetation Update

​​The herbicide test at the swimming area was successful.  CCWC has expanded the treatment area to include the rest of the swimming area and the shoreline to the front of the pavilion.  At the last meeting, the board approved for the solicitation of proposals for a professional lake management company to regularly assess the lake and make recommendations for the treatment of the common areas.  This is a proposal only.  The Board of Directors will make a decision based on budget and the best interest of CCWC.

Several lot owners have contracted for weed control around their lot.  Both companies have complied with our requests of notification and proof of insurance.  Thank you all for your cooperation in regard to this.

Sincerely,
Bob Priestly, President CCWC

Many lot owners have informed us of a consultation and/or assessment of the vegetation issues around your lot and dock area by various lake management professionals. We appreciate everyone that has called for permission before acting. This keeps us informed as to what is occurring that may affect the lake or others around you.
While CCWC does not endorse any particular company, if you as lot owners, would like to contract with a lake management professional to treat your lot area you may do so. Please follow the below guidelines:
• The company may launch their boat for treatment purposes only.
• Prior to launch
o the vendor must provide the CCWC office of proof of liability insurance with CCWC listed as other insured.
o The CCWC office must be contacted informing us of the date(s) and lots that will be treated. (CCWC office will notify the Lake Patrolman.)
• The vendor is to adhere to traveling in the designated boat lanes to get to the lots.
• CCWC is in no way responsible for any damage caused to their boat or equipment.
• The lot owner is responsible for notifying neighbors that may be affected by the treatment for either swimming and/or irrigation purposes.
Any vendor that does not adhere to the above will be asked to leave.
As an update to CCWC’s testing at the swimming area:
• The product Navigate was dispensed but was not very effective with heavy vegetation.
• Hydrothol was dispensed and we are seeing success with this product but it will be a few more days to know the full affect. This was done at the swimming area only.
We will continue to discuss the issue at future board of director meetings and keep you informed.
Thank you and enjoy the holiday weekend.


Sincerely,
Bob Priestly, President CCWC
Amy Drozd,  Vice President CCWC

​Many of you may have received an email expressing concerns about the amount of lake vegetation.  These concerns are certainly warranted. 

In response we would like to inform you as lot owners what Camp Creek Water Company is doing about the issue.  This has been a topic on our meeting agenda’s for at least the past year.  Currently, we are testing a herbicide (Navigate) at the swimming area to better understand the results and quantity that may be needed.   The herbicide can be purchased by individuals online and applied to lot areas.

We have not ruled out grass carp but at this time, we are not pursuing the purchase.  The purchase of grass carp will require us to put some additional coverage on the spillway to prevent any carp from escaping into other waterways.  This causes some other issues that may be detrimental to the overall lake. 

In addition, we are in the process of seeking a professional assessment of the lake with regard to the vegetation along with a recommendation on a plan of action for the current issue and how to manage it on an ongoing basis.

Please remember this is a long process.  Our goal is to keep Camp Creek enjoyable for users for many years to come. 

We will keep you informed of the situation as we progress.

Sincerely,

Bob Priestly, President CCWC
Amy Drozd, Vice President CCWC
