15. June 2020 · Comments Off on It’s That Time of Year Again – Time to Pull Water Chestnuts · Categories: AIS, Events, Water quality

Volunteers have been hand-pulling water chestnuts at the north end of Kinderhook Lake for years and it has been paying off through a reduction in the weed beds. But we cannot take our foot off the pedal now. To continue to reduce the spread of this aquatic invasive species, this year’s water chestnut hand-pulling event is planned for Saturday, June 27, 9:00 am – 11:00 am. Volunteers are needed.

Please meet at the north end of the lake in your kayak, canoe, rowboat, raft, or any vessel that can navigate very shallow water. Don’t forget heavy gloves and perhaps a rake. A few teams of volunteers may be dispersed to various coves around the lake where new water chestnut growth has been identified. Pulled weeds will be transferred to the ECO-Harvester and brought to shore for disposal. In the event of pouring rain or lightning, the ‘pull’ will take place at the same time on Sunday, June 28. Some light refreshments may be available. Check here or on Facebook for any potential changes. 

02. June 2020 · Comments Off on Launch Parking Now Limited to KLC Members Only · Categories: General Information, Membership

Over the past few years, there has been an increase in parking congestion at the Rt. 28 launch. This means many KLC members have been unable to launch their boats or park their trailers. Therefore, going forward, the launch parking lot will be limited to KLC members only.

If you are not a KLC member, you may not park in the launch parking lot. Non-members are still welcome to launch cartop boats but must arrange to park elsewhere. Any non-members who would like to park at the launch must become a KLC member, leave their membership poster displayed on their dashboard as proof of membership, or have a trailer sticker if they have a trailer. If you are already a KLC member with a cartop boat, please be sure to display your member poster on your dashboard. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.  

 
 
31. March 2020 · Comments Off on 2020 Dam Repairs are Complete · Categories: Dam, Update

Before Repairs

After Repairs

The latest repairs to the dam have been completed. As a reminder, two deteriorating downstream faces of the dam were in desperate need of repairs. Unfortunately, getting to an existing sound surface to attach the new concrete face required removal of greater than the expected 6” of existing concrete. In fact, an average depth of 8”–12” of existing concrete needed to be removed before the new concrete face could be properly applied. This condition could not have been determined until the existing deteriorating concrete was removed. Accordingly, this raised the final cost of engineering and construction to $81,339. Kudos to Keller Construction for completing a difficult project quickly and efficiently, and thanks to Board President Bernie Kelleher for managing the engineering and construction.

Of course, the higher construction cost has placed a greater burden on the KLC. The difference between available funds in the Dam Reserve Fund and the final construction cost has increased to over $26,000. We acknowledge and very much appreciate the generosity of donations so far, but we are still a long way from replenishing the Dam Reserve Fund. While we understand that some families may not be in a position to help due to the current state of the economy caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we ask that those who are in a more fortunate position to please consider an additional donation to the Dam Reserve Fund. Donations can be made with your mail-in membership application, using our online membership payment system, or via the “donate” button found in the right column of this website. Every dollar counts, even just a few if that’s all you can do.

The lake is rising to summer level at this time and we are looking forward to brighter and healthier days ahead. Thanks to everyone for your generosity and support.

08. March 2020 · Comments Off on Dam is in Need of Repairs · Categories: Dam · Tags: ,

One of the primary missions of the KLC is to maintain and upgrade the Nivers dam. Over the past decade, the KLC has completed well over $200,000 of major upgrades to the dam. Projects have included new coffer steel and concrete support to the upstream side of the dam, relining of the sluice pipe, repairing the sluice gate, replacing the old pedestrian bridge, and refacing several areas of the downstream side of the dam. None of these upgrades would have been possible without the generosity of our members.

Another project is now required to reface the deteriorating downstream main spillway and adjacent face of the dam. While a certain level of repairs will always be required to maintain an operational dam, we hope this project will be the last in this series of major upgrades, and will insure that the dam remains in good condition and fully operational for many years into the future.

As can be seen in this photo, the face of the main spillway is spalling and deteriorating. An area just west of the main spillway looks the same. This project will require chipping away approximately 6” of deteriorating concrete face, installing pins grouted into the remaining sound concrete dam, installing a grid of epoxy coated steel reinforcing bars, and forming and pouring a new concrete face to the main spillway and adjacent area. Approximately 620 square feet of concrete surface needs to be replaced. An added expense of this project will be the need for a crane to reach the face of the spillway in order to remove the demolished concrete facing.

Design of the repairs has been completed by Ed Horn, the same Professional Engineer who has designed the previous dam upgrades. Engineering and construction is expected to cost approximately $68,000 based on the low bid received by one of the experienced contractors who has successfully completed other major upgrades to the dam. Thanks to the Board’s yearly transfers from the General Fund, as well as member donations, we have a Dam Reserve Fund balance of approximately $52,000. However, to help close the gap between available funds and the cost of engineering and construction, we ask that all members consider making an additional donation to the Dam Reserve Fund a high priority this year. You can either make an extra donation to the Dam Reserve Fund when completing your 2020 KLC membership application or simply click on the DONATE button in the righthand column of this page. Thanks in advance for your support.

Remember the old adage – Without the dam, there would be no lake!
