Watson Drain

Seasonal limitations on water level alternations for the Delton Road Infiltration Basin were lifted on April 8th. The lifting of restrictions will allow for a higher rate of floodwater to be pumped off Upper Crooked Lake to the Basin. Water level alterations are typically restricted until the end of April. A special thanks to Matt Diana, DNR, and Audrie Kirk, EGLE, for facilitating a quick review.

A permit modification form was submitted to EGLE on April 7th to increase the size of the water withdrawal from Upper Crooked Lake that was originally permitted in May 2019. This larger withdrawal will also allow for a higher rate of pumping from Upper Crooked Lake to the Delton Road Infiltration Basin.
