After last spring’s flooding, the river receded over the summer months, exposing new three to four-foot bluffs. Some sections of the riverside trail were washed away entirely. Much to park users dismay – yet not surprisingly – the Silt Public Works Dept has not done the trail repair work that was discussed last June. The […]

Here I go again with another one of my hare-brained, animal lover rants. Here’s the deal – it could be a month or more before the river recedes to a near normal level. Even though river silt dries quickly, Dogland will be in recovery stage for many months to come. As the park recovers why […]

Woo-hoo! So I was on my way down to DCAH to get some antidepressants for Zeus and saw the park was open again.  I turned around and headed back home to fetch the dogs and my iphone. The water is down a little bit in the pond and  the ditch. Wear waterproof shoes. You will […]

On June 7, Dogland was closed due to high water. Yup. The park is officially flooded. But just try telling that to a dog. Seen riding through town in their pickup, Sikh and Fern hollered out the window, “Leashes? We don’t need no stinkin leashes!” But there is strife on the home front. Panic attacks. […]

After the Flood – Trail Damage at River Park

June 25, 2010

The flood waters have receded over the past couple weeks revealing a lot of erosion on the riverfront trail. The damage looks bad but it can be fixed. The lower interior trail that runs parallel to the ditch road is still muddy but at least there’s no damage other than ruts. There are 3 dry […]

I’ve been able to watch two SiltBOTs meetings on the live stream. I hope it will continue. At the beginning of Monday’s meeting (6/14) there was some confusion as to whether the meeting was actually streaming. It was. I had a hard time hearing at times, but I did hear Davis Farrar, Interim Town Administrator, […]
