Welcome to Langdon Lake
Langdon Lake is located in the beautiful Tollgate, Oregon mountain area.

Dear Members

This is an update on an issue discussed at the annual association meeting:

Lake water - the board voted not to treat the lake at this time, but will have the chemicals ready to apply as soon as the water temperatures are high enough next spring.
Jerry was pretty sure the water temperature has to stay above 60 degrees for the microbes to stay active. Jerry and I checked the temperature by the dock Monday and it was 65 degrees and that was at 24 inches.

Jerry also took a water sample to the lab in Pendleton, and after they had it for two days they informed Janet that they do not do algae samples. They did give us a name and location of a lab to send it to. We will get that new sample and send it ASAP.

On a side note we have had two different groups from our cabin swimming in the lake the last three weeks and have had NO reports of anyone getting sick or having skin rashes.
So if you want to wait until we send off and receive results from a second sampling before you use the lake that might be safer.

It was reported to me by our volunteer security person (Chuck Zohner) a few people may be of interest that he heard about recently. He was told by a close neighbor (off the lake property) that she ran into 3 bike riders using Elk LN this past weekend. They were 2 males and one female. All 3 looked like meth addicts. One was riding a kids bike. They were quickly prompted to leave the area as they were trespassing on private property. Their remark was that they were looking for a cabin to buy. The neighbor called their bluff and a lot of heated words were exchanged.

Keep on the lookout for anyone who doesn't belong. Contact Oregon State Police or Umatilla Sheriff Dept. if you see anything out of the ordinary.

If you were at the lake this past weekend, you noticed the freshly dug ditches on the NE side of the lake and by the main entrance. As was planned, UEC (Umatilla Electric Co-op) is in the process of burying all the main power lines, thus the reason for the mess.

I was approached with a lot of questions regarding estimated time for ditches to be covered and roads re-graveled or green areas reseeded. I spoke with the excavation project manager about this today. He said they will fill in ditches and re-gravel areas as soon as possible. Re-seeding green spots would happen after the entire project is completed. He realizes that there is a short window for any excavation at Tollgate...especially late in the summer. So he is racing against the clock to get everything done. Your patience is appreciated.

Another question was in regards to cost for the cabin owner to get underground power installed from a cabin site to the new underground power main line. There is no price per foot data on this. I was told by UEC contact person Nancy Lang that there are too many variables to give a flat rate cost. These variables include whether your meter base needs updated, whether you will need conduit in the ditch, whether you will have 200 AMP wire or Class 320 wire installed, what type of digging is involved...rocky or dirt, etc. etc. The other thought mentioned by Nancy was the fact that the entire project for burying the main power needs to be completed before cabin feeder lines are hooked in. It might be best to wait until Spring 2017 before cabin owners begin their own underground power install

Further questions on this can be answered by Nancy Lang. Her number is 541-564-4367

Finally one last question asked was whether there will be any underground power installed on the North side of the lake by Hwy 204. The answer is yes. From what I understand, that is the final phase for underground power install at Langdon Lake.

As I said, these folks are racing against the clock with their excavation and power install. They are doing their best to make everyone happy and not break a septic or water line in the process. They are estimating that everything should be finished by late September if all goes well.

Let me know if any questions.

"Stewardship in Forestry"

Fire Danger Climbs, Restrictions Increase

The likelihood of a large wildfire occurring has increased over the past several days with the recent hot and dry weather. The indices that fire managers use to measure seasonal fire severity are indicating extreme fire conditions across northeastern Oregon. As a result, fire managers for Oregon Department of Forestry’s Northeast Oregon District are increasing the wildfire prevention measures in their Regulated Use Closure.

Effective at 12:01 a.m. August 19, 2016 the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) added additional restrictions to the Regulated Use Closure for lands within the Northeast Oregon District. The Regulated Use Closure affects private, state, county, municipal, and tribal lands in seven counties: Union, Baker, Wallowa, Umatilla and small portions of Malheur, Grant and Morrow Counties. The Regulated Use Closure is intended to prevent or minimize human-caused wildfires and to protect natural resources and public health and safety.

“These restrictions are put in place to help minimize private landowners’ exposure to human caused fires. While landowners and the public must abide by these prevention measures, landowners can impose more stringent restrictions on their own land. It’s best to check with the landowner or manager of the land before you head out to enjoy the forest.” said Joe Hessel, La Grande Unit Forester. So far this year, ODF’s Northeast Oregon District has had 20 human-caused fires that have burned 698 acres. Additionally there have been 10
lightning-caused fires that have burned 123 acres.

The Regulated Use Closure includes the following fire prevention measures:

. Open fires are prohibited, including campfires, charcoal fires, cooking fires and warming fires, except at designated locations. Designated locations within the Regulated Use Closure area includes, but is not limited to, the following Oregon State Parks: Emigrant Springs, Ukiah Dale, Catherine Creek, Hilgard Junction, Red Bridge, Wallowa Lake, Minam and Unity Lake. Portable cooking stoves using liquefied or bottled fuels are allowed.

. Debris burning is prohibited, including the use of burn barrels.

. Chainsaw use is prohibited except on industrial operations that possess a valid Permit to Operate Power Driven Machinery.

. Smoking is prohibited while traveling, except in vehicles on improved roads, in boats on the water, or at a cleared area.

. Use of motor vehicles, including motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), is prohibited except on improved roads, except in the commercial culture and harvest of agricultural crops.

. Cutting, grinding and welding of metal is prohibited unless specifically waived by the State Forester.

. Mowing of dried and cured grass with power driven equipment is prohibited.

. Any electric fence controller in use shall be: 1) Listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory or be certified by the Department of Consumer Business Services; and 2) Operated in compliance with manufacturer’s instructions.

. Possession of the following firefighting equipment is required while traveling except on state highways, county roads and driveways: one shovel and one gallon of water or one 2 ½ pound or larger fire extinguisher.

Also prohibited during fire season is the use of exploding targets, tracer ammunition and sky lanterns.

Citizens are asked to continue to use caution and adhere to regulations. The public is also reminded that the Umatilla and Wallowa-Whitman National Forests, as well as the BLM are currently under public use restrictions. Current fire restrictions for forestlands in Northeast Oregon can be found at is your spot for current fire information in the Blue Mountains.

To report a fire, call Blue Mountain Interagency Dispatch at (541)963-7171 or dial 9-1-1.

Vandalism/Theft by Langdon Lake 8/18/2016
It has come to my attention that various cabins were broke into within a close vicinity of the lake. Dates that this likely took place were around August 14th and 15th. Items were stolen and cabins were left vandalized and trashed. The Umatilla Sherriff's Dept. has been notified and investigations are taking place.

One vehicle of interest is an older Chevy Cavalier car. Color is green with white hood. If you see this vehicle, please report it to the Sherriff.

Of course, always be on the lookout around the lake for people who don't belong. Don't be afraid to confront visitors and see why they are at the lake. Or feel free to call me and give a description of their vehicle/appearance.
