Information About Hydro Dredging and Solicitation for Questions You May Have

Lake Truesdale residents — you may have heard talk about a new proposed project: Hydro Dredging.

Project leader Cliff Munz along with several other lake residents have been putting their heads together these past several months. There has been one lake-wide meeting (June 15, 2017) so far — and more to come.

In the meantime, we have put together a summary of the project at the Hydro Dredging Project Page. Please read through it when you have a chance.

In addition, we have put a form on the website here so you can fill it out and send us questions you may have about Hydro Dredging. You can also sign up to be kept informed as we publish new information and schedule future meetings about the project.


  1. If it’s muck, why would you want to grind it? Better, siphon somewhere and drain so it packs down, then use it for fill where nobody cares.

  2. Hi Babette,
    That’s exactly what the dredging does. The grinder just makes it easier to suction it off the bottom and onto the drying beds on land. Check the main project page ( for photos and details – this page is just an announcement.
