Due to the mild winter and early ice melt, the KLC will start raising the lake beginning this coming Friday, April 1st. With little snow runoff this year, filling the lake to summer level will be weather dependent. Time to get your water toys ready!

We have been running into a delay in getting out the gate keys and trailer stickers. Rest assured the launch gate will remain open until after the keys have been distributed to members. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

On Monday, April 28th, the contractor completed the sluice pipe relining project. The new pipe was installed and grouted in place; it fit like a glove. The summer boards have been installed at the top of the spillway and we are bringing the lake back up to summer level. With the rain forecast over the next few days, it won’t take long. You can see construction photos on the GALLERY page.

Repairs to the dam’s sluice gate were delayed a week and are now scheduled to begin the week of April 21st. A coffer dam will be installed to prevent water from entering the sluice pipe while it is being re-lined. Repairs are expected to take about one week. During that time there will be no control over the lake level other than what goes over the dam’s spillway. Please be advised that if we have heavy rains while repairs are being done, the lake level could rise quickly.

Once the repairs are completed, the lake will be returned to summer level as soon as possible.

As many of you are aware, the level of the lake rose swiftly last week due to heavy rains, warm temperatures and snow melt. Even with the dam’s sluice gate wide open for several days before the rain, the lake filled quickly. So what happens next?

Relining of the sluice pipe (reported in the January newsletter) is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of April 14. This date, however, depends on our ability to get the lake back down to winter level. Assuming we attain winter level by April 14th, coffer steel will again be installed in front of the sluice gate to keep water out of the pipe while repairs are being made. The repairs are expected to take about one week.

Many of you who suffered dock damage this winter will have a very short window of opportunity to do dock repairs and any other shoreline projects while the lake is down before the week of April 14th. During the week the sluice pipe is being relined however, we will have no control over the lake level and the water could rise suddenly again depending on rain and flow of the Valatie Kill. Keep an eye on the water level and do your shoreline work as quickly and safely as possible.

Construction for the latest dam repair started on December 3, 2013. The contractor installed a coffer steel dam and de-watered the area in front of the sluice gate. Upon inspection, it was learned that the gasket, which we assumed required replacement, was in fine condition. However, several of the surrounding wedges were missing, which was the root cause of the leaks around the gate. The wedges were replaced and the sluice gate now has a good seal. Although the final tally is not yet in, alternative methods of installing the coffer steel dam for dewatering and replacement of the wedges instead of the entire sluice gate gasket may have reduced the cost of Phase 1 work to less than half of the original estimate.

Once dry, the sluice pipe was inspected and it was determined that the pipe needed to be relined. The contractor is preparing an estimate to reline the sluice pipe. Depending on the estimated cost and funds available in the Dam Reserve Fund, it is hoped that work to reline the sluice pipe and repairs to the dam’s facade can be completed this coming spring. In the meantime, the water level has been returned to its normal winter level. However, the coffer steel dam remains in place, limiting full control of winter water levels.

As mentioned in the October KLC News, there is a potential for more hazardous conditions for people venturing out on the ice this winter. The limited control of the water level below the ice could cause thinner ice. If you are not sure, please stay off the ice.

The Kinderhook Lake Corporation has become aware of the concerns for invasive aquatic species being found in ponds, lakes and rivers throughout the region, and several that are already present in Kinderhook Lake. Some species are so small, you may not see them or realize they are hitching a ride with you on your boat, trailer or fishing gear.

The Corporation is currently evaluating alternative methods to help stop the spread of invasive species entering Kinderhook Lake. Education appears to be the logical first step, along with following some general procedures to help protect our waters. To this end, the KLC has arranged for a presentation on invasive aquatic species by DEC Regional Fisheries Manager, Chris VanMaaren, at our Informational Meeting on June 29th, 10:00 AM at the KLIA Hall. All members, their families and friends are invited to attend. In addition, the link in the right-hand column will take you to a list of general procedures you can follow to help stop invasive aquatic hitchhikers.

Together we hope to make a difference.

A summary of issues discussed at the April 2013 Board Meeting:

  • Financial and membership reports
  • Progress of DEC permit for dam reconstruction
  • Committee selected to monitor dam reconstruction activities
  • Prevention of invasive aquatic species, DEC meeting
  • Review of options to limit lake access at Rose St.
  • Water quality treatments and associated DEC permits
  • June membership meeting agenda, speaker, member notification
  • July 4th events, responsibilities, kayak races added on July 6th
  • Summer picnic / fund raiser, responsibilities

In light of recent concerns regarding preserving our fish population, reducing the potential of invasive aquatic species entering the Lake and keeping our Lake enjoyable for all members, the KLC is instituting several new guidelines.

  1. Fishing tournaments will not be permitted on Kinderhook Lake without written permission in advance from the KLC Board of Directors. In addition, all tournament attendees must be current KLC Members. Please contact Russ Camadine at camadinep164@yahoo.com 30 days in advance if you wish to sponsor a fishing tournament.
  2. Launch gate keys are for KLC members only. Please do not share keys with non-members or you risk losing your gate privileges. Remember to lock the gate after every use to prevent non-member access.
  3. In response to member’s suggestions at last summer’s public meetings, the KLC has adopted new “Recreation Guidelines.” The guidelines will be posted at various access points around the lake and can be viewed by clicking the link in the sidebar to the right..
