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 didnâ€™t begin until 2009, reports clarecountyreview.com.
â€žThe property owners in the special assessment district at Surrey Lake paid for the dredging project,â€ť he said.
â€žThe project was originally scheduled to be complete in one year,â€ś Parks said, â€śBut 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€ś
