UNDERWATER STUMP REMOVAL UPDATE:

The company hired to begin removing stumps from the lake, JH Professional Tree Service has delayed the start of the project by one week.  Originally scheduled to begin yesterday 9/23, equipment repair/maintenance has pushed the start date to next Monday, 9/30.

 Lot owners that expressed an interest but were unable to get to the lake, now have one more weekend to mark stumps.  The cost for removal is $150. per stump.  If you would like to participate in this program, or have questions about the process you may call Cindy Caubarreaux, Secretary/Treasurer, at the Camp Creek office: 979-828-2907, or me: 979-906-8064.  Your name will be added to the list, and we can explain how to mark the stump(s) for removal. 

 Once this project is complete, attention will then shift to replacing missing channel markers and better alignment of existing markers. 

 Regards,


Ralph Crum
Chairman, Channel Marking Committee

SCHEDULED STUMP REMOVAL

 Last Friday, Members of the Channel Marking Committee along with a gracious lot owner spent the day searching for stumps just below the surface of the lake, both in designated boat channels and out.  As the lake continues to drop, it was the opportune time to begin identifying stumps that pose a safety hazard to both people and watercraft.  We found several around the lake, and they have been marked with floating jugs labeled “Stump”. 

 We have retained the services of a company to cut those identified, using an underwater hydraulic saw.  The work is scheduled to begin on Monday, September 23rd. 

 The cost of cutting per stump, is $150.  As a lot owner, if you have stumps near your boathouse that you would like removed, the company has agreed to cut them for the same price.  If you have questions pertaining to the process, or are interested in participating in this program,

please contact me at: 979-906-8064. 

 Regards,

Ralph Crum

Chairman, Channel Marking Committee

 Update on Camp Creek Vegetation –

May 19, 2020


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

  • It has been brought to our attention that there has been tubing outside of the permitted/designated ski area.  For the safety of all, all jet skiing, tubing and skiing is to be in the designated areas only. 
  • There is a mandatory $250 fine if you are operating a jet ski without a life jacket.
  • A counter-clockwise pattern when pulling a tuber/skier is required.
  • The Patrolman are on the lake daily, please make sure your boat and/or jet ski is registered with the office and your tags are visible.


 We want to keep all lot owners and their guest safe. 


New lot owners if you need assistance on how to navigate your boat from your dock towards the main channel and unsure of where stumps might be please call the Patrolman they are happy to help.

 ​​5/4/2020

​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
