- 09/23/2006: RLPOA Fall Meeting
summary: Board and about 60+ members in attendance strongly
support that the Round Lake water level be managed by an "active system"
not passively. RLPOA believes that Sawyer County should pay for a
competent independent engineering study to determine what the normal and
minimum/maximum level for Round Lake should be if they want to change the
prevailing 1941 PSC governing the water level on Round Lake now.
