This video was made at The Leelanau School during the Michigan Swimmer’s Itch Partnership conference. The interview is between Rob Karner, Watershed Biologist, and Ron Reimink of SiCon, LLC. This video highlights the recommendations of SiCon to the Glen Lake Association for the next 8-10 months as it relates to what steps should be taken to reduce swimmer’s itch. Ron Reimink is the world’s leading researcher with respect to Common Mergansers and live trapping them off lakes that have swimmer’s itch. Watch and learn about this important topic for the Glen Lake Association members.
This video is filmed on location at Hatlem Pond. Watershed biologist Rob Karner interviews the engineer of Spicer Engineering. This video highlights the work being done during the fall of 2016 that will measure the sediment that has been “trappped” by the pond upstream from the dam. Once we know the depth of the pond after two years of dredging it, we can determine how fast the pond is filling up again and forecast how long it may take before a decision is made for another maintenance dredge to happen sometime in the future. Stay tuned for the results of this important study.
