Surrey Lake Dredging Completed

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 didn’t begin until 2009, reports

The property owners in the special assessment district at Surrey Lake paid for the dredging project,” he said.

The project was originally scheduled to be complete in one year,“ Parks said, “But 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.“
