                                    The Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board met on January 30 in Richmond and one of the many topics on their agenda was the
   LOWA Board Meeting
                                Lake of the Woods Veterans Memorial Dam. The SWCB approved granting LOWA a two-year extension of our Conditional Certificate
       February 25              and approved an Alteration Permit authorizing us to proceed with efforts to modify the dam. The Alteration Permit is also good for two

                                so as to feed into the run-out area below the existing spillway.

   purchase of adult entrée     fer dam, approximately 300 feet in length, will be installed on the Lake side of the dam. The area behind the coffer dam will be dewatered
                                so that the work can take place. The plans call for zero lowering of the Lake during construction. (This is a huge difference from the plan
                                of four years ago. That plan would have required lowering the Lake 5 to 7 feet during construction. Doing so would have affected use of

      8 AM to 2 PM daily        prices and ability to sell. Furthermore, there were also significant negative impacts to the Lake environment that would have occurred.)
  during February and March         The coffer dam will stick up about 5 feet above the water surface and will be about 30 feet out from where the water surface meets the
                                riprap. Use of the Lake will still be allowed. However, we will have to create a significant “No Wake” Zone out from the coffer dam. So,
                                while one will certainly be able to enjoy the Lake, the area near the Clubhouse and Main Marina will likely have significant limitations.
                                    There are still many things about the process to be fine tuned. With that in mind, our engineer has offered to make a detailed presenta-

                    from our books and saving $16, 300 in interest charges. The divided opinions of Board mem-
                    bers regarding the appropriateness of this decision were reflected in the 4 to 3 vote. The Board
                    voted for contributions to the Replacement Reserve of $138,016 to accumulate funds for the
                    repair of the Clubhouse pool and bathhouse and $100,000 toward the New Capital Reserve
