The main purpose of this note is simply to wish everyone good health “until we meet again”, very shortly, at Estling. With water-on scheduled for April 12th campers will be in residence soon. Scott is monitoring the weather and may turn on the water slightly before April 12th. He will keep us posted if this is possible.
With the measures being taken around the Corona virus, including the CDC advising no gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks and the federal government advising no meeting of more than 10 people for the next 15 days, I am thankful that we still have a few months before our summer begins. These guidelines will hopefully be less severe by then.
I will refrain from turning this note into a newsletter with updates on various ELC subjects, but I do want to let you know that the second of three reports undertaken by consultants to NJ Transit has been submitted to the NJ DEP and posted to our website. The Estling Lake Dam Spillway and Embankment Stability Evaluation concludes that the railroad embankment and the spillway could fail under certain stress test conditions. The consultants recommend that the risks be considered and a plan developed to reduce these risks. We should have more specific information this summer.
That’s it for now. Do take care!
