It looks like we may have a good hand here. Touch wood… Currently we have low water below 2,000 cfs predicted for early next week. The Corps has been very responsive and communicative as we have worked for this window which has been extremely helpful. Barring any major precipitation we have scheduled a visit from the FERC Chicago Office to come down and inspect the dam which is planned for 8:00 AM on Tuesday morning. Wouldn’t you know we would get low water right in the midst of the inaugural speech. Never mind that, we are grateful for the opportunity to get out on the dam. We are rounding up our crew to get out there and it looks like we may even have some warmer weather early next week.
A note on the history on the site, Dad has said there are quite a few errors which we are going to correct asap. It just requires a window of time to sit down and do it. The website was originally put together with a grant from the Kansas Corporation Commission. Pinnacle Technology put most of it together for us and they did a very good job with the information they had available. We’ll continue to try to put more time into the website to make sure all the history is accurate and that we keep it up to date. We are glad to see that we even have people that read it from time to time! Feel free to send in comments about Bowersock if you have some history about which we might not be aware!
