SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 11 ·§ 1937 ·I' IMPROVING OF RIVERS PLANNED Dams Will Be Constructed Near Manly; Plymouth Pond Scheduled. FOREST CITY--Seventeen men started work under the supervision of the state planning board, removing dead trees from the Pilot Knob state park. It is thought that the work there will last about two weeks, alter which the men will start r i v e r i m p r o v e m e n t work along the river above , and below Forest City, opening closed springs along the banks of-the river and near the stream. A wing dam will be constructed in the riv- , er east of Forest City, just above the outlet of the sanitary sewer. The dam will raise the water slightly.. The owner of the Jand near the site of the dam, Duncan Clark, has granted an easement to permit the construction o£ the dam. - . Dr. F. J. Colby of Forest City, member of the state conservation commission, will have charge of the work, and announced that work will start soon on a 140 foot dam in the Shell Rock river a half mile south of the bridge where highway number nine crosses the' Shell Rock east of Manly.'The site of the dam is at the location of the old Foster Mill dam, an historic spot in that vicinity in pioneer days. rian Plymouth Pond. Work is'expected to start soon on the construction of a fish rearing porid south of Plymouth. The conservation commission and the WPA have approved the construction of the pond,'Which will be spring fed. The water level o£ the pond will be about one foot higher than that of the Shell Rock and will be used as a rearing pond for fish. In regard to the improvement of state-owned lakes and streams, Dr. Colby says that "under the jurisdiction of the slate conservation commission there are some 65 · meandered lakes with approximately 41,000 acres of water surface, some 11 streams with approximately 800 miles of state- owned river bed, and a number of artificial lakes, that are now under construction or have been completed. Dredfftnjr Is Proposed. .In connection with the meandered lakes, surveys have b'een made during the past years and tentative plans prepared relating to the improvement of some 30 of them by dredging, bank protection, erosion control and various other construction work. The estimated cost is.$3,660,000 with the maximum job being $500,000 and a minimum, $50,000. It has been apparent for a long while that the natural ;3akes were becoming stilted, d u e ' t o erosion from the banks, watershed, 'high winds, blown material and from the decay of vegetation.' The lakes are a natural resource of the state and of great value but due to the advances of civilization and things that have been created artificially, it will be necessary to take artificial measures to maintain the lakes and produce the full benefits from them. The same is true also to a certain extent con- cerning the various rivers of the state. Buried at Clarion. DUMONT--George Samson, 79, died early Monday at the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Dr. and Mrs. C. F. Roder, where he was bedfast since coming here in November. The body was taken to Webster City "where funeral services were held Wednesday.
