Flooding Update

Members,

Our crews and some volunteers have been working since this morning to clean up the hay bales, logs, debris, etc. THANK YOU SO MUCH to the folks that have been helping us all day do that. And thank you to everybody staying off the lake so that cleanup can safely happen quickly. From Cove 5 north looks better than the south side of the lake. We are going to stop our cleanup operation from 6-8 tonight to allow members on the lake for a few hours. THIS MEANS ABSOLUTELY NO WAKE. And also, please stay out of Cove 7. Those poor folks are still cleaning up from the tornado, now this. We will reevaluate the whole situation in the morning. The lake will close down again after 8 pm. Of course, no parade tomorrow night. EVERYBODY, PLEASE CHECK THE ELECTRIC TO YOUR DOCKS!!!!We also ask that all members keep their vehicles/cars/side by sides, etc out of the coves. It is mucky and we’re leaving huge ruts. We’ve also had a lot of reports of snakes. Two times today, that Cove 9 bridge was closed…….We will be inspecting it for damage as soon as we can. What kind of fun do you wanna gave next weekend???? – lol!

Flooding

Members,
We have had some significant flooding at Indian Hills. Cove 9 Bridge was under water for about 2 hours and now the water has receded and the road is currently open. Right now, the lake is closed until further notice for safety reasons as many watercrafts and debris are floating loose. We are currently experiencing more rain so it is possible the situation could worsen. We will keep you advised as changes happen please check the social media sites for immediate updates.

4th of July Reminders

 

Reminders for our Members & Guests to Have a Safe Fourth of July Holiday

  • ENTRANCE GATE
    • We have employees and volunteers that will be assisting at the front gate this weekend on Friday and Saturday. Please be patient as we assist your guests with entry into the community.  Volunteers will only help them with using the Guest Directory.  If you do not answer your guests will not be allowed to enter.
    • Prepare Your Guests Before They Arrive
      • Make Sure Guests Have Your 4-Digit Code(s) – this will speed up the process from less than 30 seconds to several minutes:
      • Know When Your Guests Are Arriving – make sure you are in a place where you have phone/cell phone coverage so you can remotely open the gate when your guests arrive.
    • Exit Gate – Stop at the sign and slowly inch forward towards the gate to activate the gate sensor to open.
