According to Clare County Drain Commissioner Carl Parks, a $970,000 six-year dredging and improvement project at Surrey Lake is now complete.
Parks said the project began in 2006 with engineering, surveying and securing a ten-year bond. The actual dredging didnât begin until 2009, reports clarecountyreview.com.
âThe property owners in the special assessment district at Surrey Lake paid for the dredging project,â he said.
âThe project was originally scheduled to be complete in one year,â Parks said, âBut due to breakdowns caused by obstacles in the lake including wood, ice shanties, chains, large rocks, wire and fishing line, the actual dredging lasted three years.â
