The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Volunteers for Waste Management would like to remind everyone of Enid Lake’s annual clean up day. The event is scheduled Saturday, Feb. 27, beginning at 7 a.m. The staff at Enid Lake and volunteers with Waste Management encourages everyone to pitch in and help clean and maintain Enid Lake’s beauty.
Last year over 150 volunteers picked up 75 compacted cubic yards of trash and 71 tires. This year we hope to increase the amount of trash collected. This goal can only be accomplished with your help. A hot lunch, drawing for door prizes and a raffle will follow the morning’s clean up activities.
The volunteers with Waste Management would also like to remind everyone that there will be an organizational meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. at Enid Lake Field Office.
Corps officials also would like to remind the public that the annual habitat day activities scheduled Feb. 6 have been cancelled due to high lake level predictions.
On Tuesday, January 18, Enid Lake’s lake level was 251.63 feet above sea level, which is 21.33 feet higher than guide curve set by District Headquarters in Vicksburg. Currently Enid Lake has gate 1 and gate 2 opened to a total of 5 feet.
With the high lake levels, Corps officials are also stressing water safety is a top priority to the ranger staff at Enid Lake. Currently, Enid Lake’s ranger staff are gearing up for their 2010 Water Safety Campaign. Any school, civic club, day care, library, or other organization interested in a program should contact Enid Lake Field Office at 662-563-4571. Programs can be geared to fit any age group and can be scheduled on weekends.
