Attendees:  Grant Blair, Craig Stuckey, Walker Moore, I. Lehr Brisbin , Joyce Cossey, Walt Willard, Claire Hamanaka, Deborah Bailey, Rich & Gail Hermann, Dan Koenig, Rossi Corwon, Roy Mendelshon, Darrell Gregory, Chris Starker,

Treasurer’s Report:  $716.50 in bank.

Lake Management:  Rossi Corwon discussed plans under FERC review for replacing the Fuse Plug at Buzzard’s Roost Dam. This will be paid by the 2007 Capital Sales Tax. About $20M was set aside, with $1M authorized for studies. A number of systems were studied, with a Fuse Gate or Station Gate option currently being studied. Plans are balancing cost, suitability, with minimal effects on lake level and environment when the project is executed, hopefully beginning in 2018.

Hydrilla:  Weeds in Summerset Bay are both hydrilla and eelgrass.  Roy Mendelson, (a resident) reported the eelgrass is not responding to treatment.

Web Page:  Dan Koenig reported on PLG web page. We have transferred hosting from California to a local provider, Technisis for $120 annually. Domain registration will cost an additional $70/5-years. These fees will be due again in July. Dan also suggested we hire Andy Johnson for  additions,  or design/layout changes.

Lake Clean-Up :  Cleanup scheduled for March 11th. We are participating in planning with Keep Greenwood County Beautiful.  Register at http://www.greenwoodsc.gov/countywebsite/

Ninety Six and Greenwood Fishing teams have been contacted and will launch from Buzzards Roost boat launch. There are about 30 members on each team.

SCWRA:   PLG will present at SCRWA round table on March 23rd.
