Home owners at Crooked lake in Delton are facing the possibility there maybe no relief to the high lake level despite efforts to bring the water level down.Engineers and county leaders say they're up against a wall. According to Barry County drain commissioner Jim Dull several property owners just backed out of a deal to allow pumping water on their land.
For over a month the county has been pumping water from Crooked Lake across M-43 into Glasby lake. The pumping has now been stopped because the county has reached the limit of how much water they can pump into Glasby lake. Official are keeping their fingers crossed hoping no torrential rains hit the area.
