Irrigation Lake Update #1

The pond is lowered to about 4 ft where the end of the inlet pipe is located. This is the area in which we need to work. Below the water is muck so there is no solid ground beneath the lake. Fortunately there is a small concrete pad underneath the area where the stand for the strainer sits. Otherwise we will use empty wood pallets to stand on assuming they do not sink in the muck.

The greens are fine but there are dry areas in fairways and roughs. These areas are going dormat and are not dead. They will recover if we can get water to them in the next day or so. Plus we will use some micro-irrigation in these areas which I am excited to show everyone next week. This will help greatly.

We are awaiting the arrival of the new strainer. Once here we will install at the end of the inlet pipe and begin filling the lake up.
