Heron Lake Update...
Last weekend, a small work party (Ernie N., Pete B., John P., and dockmaster) installed five more knee braces and a winch base on B dock. The club is buying a new toy, whoops, tool, an electric impact wrench, for use in more rapidly bolting items together.
Heron Lake has a surface elevation of 7,144.50 feet with 197,360 acre feet as of 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, 15 May 2007. It is up .42' (5 inches) and 1,645 acre feet in 24 hours and up 1.06 feet and 4,127 acre feet in 71 hours. Depth in the marina cove is about 19 feet.
Willow Creek is running at 823 cubic feet per second (c.f.s.), ranging from 434 to 890 c.f.s. in the past 71 hours. The mouth of the Azotea Tunnel has a flow of 822 c.f.s. (460 to 943 c.f.s.).
This Friday, May 18, our diver, Mark, plans to connect the B-C trusses. With that task completed, and a bit more work on bolting long trusses and knee braces, the marina should be fully ready for summer.
The Rio Grande Sailing Club will host its next meeting on Saturday, May 26, 11:00 a.m. It will also be a potluck lunch and skipper/crew meeting for a long/fun/cruising race that will start at 2:00 p.m. off the southwest corner of A dock.
