1. Carp – The Grass Carp were put in the lake several weeks ago. Aquatic Systems will continue chemical treatment for any algal growth that occurs. Since introducing the carp to the lake the algae appears to be diminishing.
2. The Vertex. Aeration System was installed about a month ago. Recent tests of the dissolved oxygen in the lake water showed levels of 8 – 9 mg/L, which is substantially over the permitted minimum limit of 5 mg/L.
3. The new Drinking Water Plant Permit requires daily testing of the discharge water from the lake. We are testing for Flow Rate, pH and Dissolved Oxygen levels. If the Lake is not discharging, no tests are required.
The Spa – the cameras are in and working properly.

241 Barons – We are continuing to negotiate with Wells Fargo Bank, the current holder of the mortgage on the unit, to buyout the mortgage and take full title to the unit. So far, we think we are within one or two people of talking to the real decision maker. Bucking their bureaucracy requires a lot of patience and persistence. Meanwhile, the unit is being rented and the rentals are repaying the expenses and past due balances.
