Pond dam need repair, gates need to be reinstalled – dpendent on water level / flow from Anderson. No committed date from water district. Pond has new dirt build-ups / berms pushing out to South 55’s. East side of South 55’s NOT-BOATABLE (is that a word? LOL) Large amounts of big debris in the pond.

Boat ramp is clear, part of parking lot is washed out. Course anchors in place at least through 5 ball. April Pond use is not likely
