Is Dredging on Simonton Lake That Important?


In 2011 Simonton Lake Home Owner’s Association had a water quality study done and it was aggressively recommended that the sediment buildup is a risk, especially in the No Wake Zone part of the Chanel.

  • Plant Life De-composing
  • Grass Clippings
  • Leaves
  • Animal waste
  • Erosion of the Soil
