(Neb.)-Chadron State Park Pond Outlet Structure To Be Fixed
LINCOLN, Neb. – The water level of the Chadron State Park pond is being allowed to completely recede following the primary tourism season because of a broken board in the impoundment’s outlet structure, according to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
The pond is fed by water from nearby Chadron Creek. Overflow from the pond drains back into the creek through the aging outlet structure. The outlet will be inspected and repaired once the pond is drained. In the meantime, the pond’s water and fish will be released to Chadron Creek. If the outlet doesn’t require major repairs, officials intend to have the pond refilled and restocked in time for the spring 2014 fishing season.
The period of low water also will serve as an opportunity to complete soil tests to determine the feasibility of removing sediment from the pond to improve its fishery.
