LAKE / ASSOCIATION ACTIVITIES
Lake Level / Pump Operations
The Association owns and operates a high capacity well and pump to assist in maintaining tan established water level within the lake. We are primarily dependent upon rain water to provide water for the lake. We utilize the well / pump to add water when the rain fall is not sufficient to maintain an expectable level. The board through years of measurement has established an expected water level for the lake. We have also established a policy of when the pump operates and when it is turned off based on the water level.
Lake Level Policy
Crooked Lake Texas is a natural, seepage, pothole or ground water level lake. It is not a spring-fed or tributary-fed lake, nor does it have any inlets or outlets. It relies on precipitation and runoff to maintain its level. The lake also serves as a recharge basin for the aquifers below the surface and this "draining" effect, coupled with warm weather evaporation, significantly lowers the lake level during the summer months.
The Association owns and operates a well and pump station to maintain a lake level that allows all lake property owners access to the lake. The CLTA has established a desired lake-level mark for the lake of 895.45 feet, (10,745.43 inches), above sea level. The CLTA Board monitors the lake level and turns the pump on / off as need to maintain the desired lake level.
The Association membership established the following policy regarding operation of the pump:
The lake augmentation pump is to be turned on in the Spring when the water level is 8” below the normal high water mark. During the Summer it is turned off when the water level reaches 4” below the normal high water mark.
Water / Lake Quality
The Association Board has contracted with Restorative Lake Sciences (18406 West Spring Lake Road Spring Lake, MI 49456) to monitor the water quality of our lake. Jennifer Jermalowicz-Jones is our primary contact. http://www.restorativelakesciences.com
