Discussion occurred regarding a petition of Yale Canal Civic Club and property owners of Yale Retreat Mobile Home Village regarding a drainage problem.
Mr. Bill King, President, Yale Retreat Civic Club, appeared before the Board and expressed the concern of the property owners living on or near the canal. He discussed the obnoxious odor and pollution problems they feel are possibly in existence due to the drainage problem.
Ted Wicks, Acting Pollution Control Director, informed the Board the testing and research done in the canal indicated the bacteria level was normal and there was no indication of any health problems.
Mr. J. C. Powers, who owns property abutting the canal, was present and stated he would not give the County an easement across his property to reroute the drainage, although the property could be purchased.
Ms. Ethel Hart, Catherine Yarborough, Mr. Hellinger, and Mr. Harvey Ford, all of Yale Mobile Home Park, spoke to the Board concerning the problem.
Mr. C. E. Heppberger, President, Lake Improvement Association, advised the Board he was concerned and interested in correcting the source of the problem.
Commr. Windram asked for what may or may not be viable alternatives for correcting the problems. Ben Benedum, Public Works, gave the following:
1. Additional 200' of drainage pipe, which would not reduce the possible pollutants, and there would be no adequate means to maintain the pipes, therefore would not be a solution.
2. Holding Pond, which would be adjacent to the rear of lots fronting on Chisholm Trail, therefore the problem would still exist.
3. To reroute the ditch to move the water away from the Mobile Home Park would be quite an extensive construction project and the drainage would then run into Lake Yale, however the ditch would have to run across Mr. Powers' property and he has indicated he would not grant an easement for this purpose.
Mr. Hank Paarup addressed the Board and stated he felt if the bulk head on Mr. Powers' canal was removed it would reduce the water level in that canal and eliminate some of the drainage problem.
Mr. Buddy Marshall, who owns land to the north of the canal, stated he felt the only possible solution would be to reroute the ditch to the north into marsh lands.
Commr. Burhans abstained from participation in this particular discussion due to his relationship to Mr. Buddy Marshall.
On a motion by Commr. Middleton, seconded by Commr. Carson and carried, the Board referred the problem to Public Works and Pollution Control for further study and to report to the Board on February 19, 1980.
