11/24/2013:  Flash Back: County Board unanimously approves in 2007 then effectively rejects 13 to 3 in 2012 basically same low water weir "active" management on Round Lake.  2007 Land & Water Conservation Committee recommends $175,000 for potential Little Round Lake Dam project.  OPINION: What happened?  One thing that happened was that this website was asked by RLPOA to not post anything on water issue since mid 2010 unless approved by RLPOA water committee particularly if considered disagreeable to County or in their opinion controversial - the RLPOA policy seemed to be significantly concentrated on lets get along and be civil & respectful. This website did reluctantly comply and in our opinion County concentrated on internal County Board politics without any effective public opposition or concern of adverse repercussions by opposing RLPOA.  This is one of the main reasons that this website is now completely independent & RLPOA is going to get their own official website www.roundlakes.org  The above 180 degrees opposite Sawyer County Board votes show the net result of this RLPOA policy since 2010.  Time and the NN culverts was used to delay and ultimately obviate implementation of first 2007 County board vote by Land & Water/Zoning Committee non elected official.   What about high water protection?  In this website's opinion there does not appear to be any and even at current elevation 1345.63 at Carlson Dam essentially nothing is flowing downstream thru dam which means that there are new downstream obstructions in addition to the historic beaver dam at elevation 1345.3.  As bad as drought was high water in future may even be worse.   Apparently Round Lake will have a future with neither low or high water mitigation efforts.  This website invites all opinions on this and any issue concerning Round Lake.
