Erosion Mitigation at Longs Creek

Erosion Mitigation at Longs Creek

STREET COMMISSIONER Harry Bridgmon reported during the July 13 Auburn City Council meeting that work has been done to address an erosion issue along the south bank of Longs Creek near the Auburn Recreation Complex. Bridgmon said crews had deposited about 55 loads of rip rap and dirt on the bank which is in close proximity to the walking trail which encircles the ballfield/soccer field complex. Workers are also fixing another portion of the creek bank further to the east. Nemaha County Herald photo by Darrell Wellman

Kirkman’s Cove on Health Alert Effective July 10

Kirkman’s Cove on Health Alert Effective July 10

Effective immediately, the lake at Kirkman’s Cove is on health alert due to high levels of toxic blue-green algae. Tests taken Monday, July 6, indicated levels were far above the limit of 8 ppm. Signs will be posted at the lake, and visitors are urged to exercise caution and avoid contact with the water wherever possible. Especially important is to take care that pets and small children are not exposed to the water or drink it. Skin irritation can occur after exposure, so make sure to rinse skin thoroughly if you encounter the algae, which resembles bright green paint on the water’s surface.
