POA Employees Hard at Work
On the way home from exercising our Arkansas Yard Dog (Bubba) at the DeSoto Dog Park, we decided to make a detour to the Cortez Pavilion area to check out the progress of the cove dredging. The moment we entered the pavilion parking lot, we witnessed hard-working POA employees in a flurry of busy activity dredging the cove. It was wet and dreary and it kind of reminded me of my youthful days mudding in the muck of Louisiana swamps.
This was actually our first time observing skid steers digging out the silt of a cove, and it was a sight to behold. The POA employees were professional and fast, so watch the video and let them show you how it is done!
The video speed was modified after a few minutes to enable viewers to see the entire scope of their work.

Thanks to all involved in rethinking the dredging. It will carve out hard to reach coves and basically do a better job than the traditional dredging method. In addition, according to the last meeting, cost half as much or over 300k per lake. Future cost will further be reduced per POA management.
