Lake George Depths / Lake Bottom Topography – FOIA Draining The Bath Tub Lake George
THAT GIANT FLUSHING SOUND
Listen to the ORAL Evidence from the US Supreme Court https://www.oyez.org/cases/1971/50%20ORIG
SEE Q. Why does the lake get too high at times?
The capacity to release water from the lake is small in relationship to the volume of heavy runoff. The capacity has been likened to draining a bathtub through a pinhole. When water entering the lake exceeds the maximum rate that can be discharged, the lake rises.
Each winter the lake is drawn down in anticipation of the spring snow melt. Snow surveys help to estimate the amount of water that is resident in the basin’s snow pack and refine “winter pool” target elevations. Under ideal conditions the spring thaw is gradual, re-charging groundwater and tributaries and allowing the lake to slowly replenish a foot or more of elevation to the target level of 4.0 (RRG) around April 1. However, nature can be anything but predictable. A combination of rain and melting snow can produce an inflow of water that exceeds the storage capacity created by draw down. Even when inflow conditions return to normal, it is possible only to lower the lake level at a rate of about an inch per day.
( The Man Made Dams and Alexandria Street Bridge CHOKE THE LAKE causing the INADEQUATE DRAINING. Also the Systems Properties, ENEL Power and International Paper purposely use the water and this is the real drainage issues )
The Lake Is Drawn Down in the WINTER ( during ICE COVER ) great dock damaging system. Dock Repair Contractors, the Mills and State Ka Ching Ka Ching Kas Ching make money on this for CERTAIN
A Christmas Eve 2016 Letter to THE EMPIRE STATE
Greetings to ALL, on this Christmas Eve, 2016
Allowing Millions of TONS of Ice and Snow to be erratically lowered and raised very obviously acts like the Blade of a Giant Bull Dozer . The State of New York, Conservation Commission, Lake George Association, Vermont’s Lawyers and MILLIONS of Professionals and Witnesses understand this . SEE LAKE ICE DAMAGES
Just like Alexander West is being held accountable for NOT SEEING THE GARWOOD …….. International Paper, the DEC, Glens Falls Banks and the Power Corporations OPERATING the Pin Hole in the Bath Tub are OBVIOUSLY GUILTY of Eradicate WINTER / SPRING Ice and Snow Manipulations. Alexander West did NOT SEE I suppose BUT New York State and International Paper Et Al CERTAINLY DID and for many many YEARS.
The simple FACT is The MILL POND WAS USED for WATER for the Mills in the Winter when Pulping and Heat and Electricity was obviously needed. The INTENTIONALLY Designed and Engineered and Professionally Constructed DRAINAGE WORKS at Alexander Street Bridge and at Dam “A” the ENEL Power / Systems Properties Penstocks DRAIN THE LAKE IN THE WINTER . The State of New York has made BILLIONS from these Mill Pond Operations
As You all know I am Anita and Clifford Witham’s Son. The CATASTROPHIC Ice Manipulations from 1967 – 1970 on top of the previous eradicate Winter Ice ….. Financially Destroyed My Parents. The Conservation Department had amassed TWO LARGE INVESTIGATION FILES on My Parents ( Our Family ) in the 1960s which aim was to AQUIRE The Witham Lands at Harris Bay. I was Physically Attacked and the Files Ripped from My Arms at DEC Headquarters in 1975 in Colonie NY. The DOSSIER’s that The Conservation Department Amassed on Anita and Clifford Witham were part of a much larger collection on MANY THOUSANDS MORE on Land Owners in the Adirondacks.
The Dossiers were part of the TARGETTING of Lands inside the Blue Line for Acquisition. THESE FILES NEED TO BE MADE AVAILABLE and all Records, Data and Files that reveal the existence of the DOSSIERS being created do as well.
The Witham Family very obviously being CATASTROPHICALLY FINANCIALLY DAMAGED requests that International Paper, The Power Company, New York State and Their Respected INSURANCE COMPANIES make restitution to the Witham Family for these Losses. Witham’s Lost 600+ Acres at Harris Bay, Their Marina and Home and as a direct result Clifford Witham THE SWAMP FOX suffered enormously as did My Mother Anita Witham. Clifford Witham’s Son took His Own Life in 1973 and Dad died of a Massive Heart Attack in 1974. My Mother’s Life was massively impacted and the Family was SWINDLED OUT OF ALL THEIR ESTATE as a direct result of the MILL POND OPERATIONS
The Lake George Park Commission and DEC / State of New York’s DOCK REPAIR PERMITS DATA and RECORDS for DECADES made lots of Money for the State and Towns along with SIGNIFICANT Tax Revenues every year the Docks and Boat Houses required REBUILDING and REPLACEMENT because of the DRAWING DOWN The Ice and SNOW
The Pine Hole in the Bath Tub Works ALSO are manifesting in Lake George STAGNATING and DIEING from being PLUGGED UP by the FLUSHER WORKS. Again the EMPIRE STATE has made BILLIONS from the PIN HOLE INDUSTRY and it’s related FALLOUT.
The Records, Data, Films, Books, Letters, Photos and Historical Records relevant to The MILL POND and the PIN HOLE OPERATIONS …… Island, Shoreline, Boat House and Bulkhead Records that appertain to the MILL POND OPERATIONS all need to be made available.
ALSO some effort to compensate the Witham Family needs to be forthcoming. Mother and Dad DID NOT DESERVE what happened to Them ……. Our FAMILY did NOT Deserve This.
Son of the Swamp Fox
This is an ADDENDUM to the below FOIA,
Lake George Depths / Bottom Topography Charts and Maps are additionally requested. The Lake Level Control by DRAINING the so called Bath Tub records would include the records available for the calculations and implementation of the Lake Draining since the State of New York has operated and controlled the Bath Tub exit or draining mechanisms at the North end of the Bath Tub.
Note: The Lake Basin Topography above and below water in the Tub is requested. The FIRST Obstruction to the Lake Draining is the Bridge Street / Alexandria Street Bridge which has a floodgate mechanism evident on it’s SOUTH SIDE with Steel Rails and then the DAM “A” or upper Dam adjacent the ENEL POWER Plumes for Their Electrical Generation. The original level of Lake Andia’ ta’roc’te ( Lake George ) and the Basin / Bath Tub was artificially raised by the Dams engineered, financed and constructed by the Glens Falls and Ticonderoga, Lake George Paper Companies with the International Paper Company the Glens Falls Banks and the Finch Pruyn Paper Companies. The INCREASE in the Lake Levels and the DIKES/ BERMS or Road Beds from the Rt 9L at Bay Road to the Ridge Road across Dunhams, Harris and Warner Bays ( ESPECIALLY HARRIS BAY ) cause the impoundment of water. The Man Built, Engineered and Operated Release Works ( The Dams ) obviously create the Pinhole in the BATH TUB Conditions.
I am seeking these records as an Historical Investigation for and in the Public Interests
Lowering and Raising the Lake George Ice Sheet by New York State, The Paper Companies and the Electrical Companies during Winter Months obviously has caused serious damages to private property all over the Lake. I seek these records to document what the Ice Sheet Does. Many individuals from Cornell, Paul Shafer College, John Apperson, Charles Tuttle, Irving Langmuir, Frank Leonbruno The New York State Conservation Commission and many many others have witnessed the property damage caused by the erradict ICE SHEET on the Bath Tub. This investigation and FOIL / FOIA is in the PUBLIC INTEREST.
This FOIA seeks access to the records of the Water Enetering The Bath Tub ( Lake George ) and the Water Leaving the Lake George Basin through the Pin Hole in the Bath Tub.
