DIGGING HOLES: DNR leans on resident support for lake project

July 26, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Lake living might be the life for residents in the Tri-Lakes area, but over-grown channels and mucky canals are making waterway travel impossible.

Recently, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced a project to dredge specific channels around Little Cedar, Big Cedar, and Round Lakes.

As part of the dredging work at Round Lake, a hole was needed to pump the channel water into in order to allow for DNR officials to access the sites.

Lake residents, Matt and Melissa Hile, donated a large portion of their property for the massive pit. An estimated 100 yards in length and approximately 20 feet deep, the hole will hold water and muck transferred from the channels.
