1,500 Acres of Poop and Pee and Millions of Tons of Industrial Wastes, Toxins and Chemicals FLUSHED and Abandoned by the Glens Falls and Ticonderoga BANKS . The Historical Record DOES NOT LIE. See The Poisoning of Lake Champlain and Lake George
The Continuing Up and Down and Up and Down and Up and Down of Winter Water ( ICE )DESTROYED Docks, Boat Houses, Shoreline and Islands. New York State, Queensbury, Warren County, Lake George Association and the Lake George Park Commission / DEC are stuck with Their Own Complaints, Their Own Criminal Indictments and the Historical Records of the Up and Down and Up and Down and Up and Down caused by the DAM “A ” being 46% able to Control the Lake during DAMAGING ICE COVER is FACT. The DAM “A” is 54% Inadequate ….. DEC, Lake George Association, Warren County, New York State THESE ARE THE DAM FACTS
PS the D&H Railroad Owned the DAM “A” for a spell at the Alexander Street Area at WEEDVILLE ….. At the Portage Location ( The Carrying Place ) where the LaChute’s CRAPPY Insufficient Dam “A” was built to CHOKE LAKE GEORGE. The Facts the DAM FACTS are Exposed. The DAMNED Lake Ice the DAMNED Draining of the Lake in the WINTER caused BILLIONS in Damages so International Paper and the Others with the Glens Falls Banks could get RICH.
1,500 Acres of SEWAGE AND INDUSTRIAL WASTES ABANDONNED IN Champlain ……. Great Job NEW YORK DEC
Lake Ice that is One Foot This weighs 57 Pounds per cubic foot. The ice just on Harris Bay consists of more that 50 Acres of Ice. More than 12 Million Pounds of Downward and Upward Ice being Manipulated INTENTIONALLY on Lake George New York, repeatedly destroyed the Witham Family Marina AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN. The State Concealed Their INTENTIONAL Operations of Winter Lake Drawdown and Flushings for many years.

Recently I have come to learn that the Water Release Capacity of the DAM “A” at the exist of Lake George is only able to release 46% of the water needed to prevent an over topping of the Dam. The Lake George Park Commission has many times described the Dam’s inadequacy as has the US Army Corp of Engineers and the Dam Safety Inspection Division of New York State as ” Inadequate ” to properly release Spring Waters from Lake George.
In years past for many years in a row, New York State practices WINTER LAKE DRAWDOWNS during Ice and Snow Sheet Cover because of the Present Dam’s inability to adequately release Spring Run Off or Snow Pack and Ice Sheet Melt and the Spring Rains. This inadequate Dam is less than 1/2 able to handle the Spring Waters. The Pinhole in the Bath Tub is Controlled and Owned by New York State and it’s Corporate Agents, Partners and Representatives.
For many Years the inadequate Dam in the Winter LOWERED the Ice Sheet and Snow on Lake George exerting Millions of Pounds if Ice Sheet both Downward and Upward on Clifford and Anita Witham’s Marina at Harris Bay. The Witham Family Marina. The inadequacy of the State’s Dam and Operations to Control Ice Sheet Levels destroyed the Witham Marina many times from 1960 – 1970. The massive destruction of Boat Houses, Docks Bulkheads , Shoreline and Islands has been on account of the MILL POND OPERATIONS and what I have recently learned ENVIRONMENTAL FLUSHING of Sewage and Leachate from Lake George as well as the State maintaining and operating this wholly inadequate Flushing, Drain or Drawdown Facility known as Dam “A ” Dam # 230 on the State’s Dam Safety Inventory.
The State has had knowledge that Their Inadequate Dam and Their Operation of it had for years been destroying private property on Lake George yet FAILLED IN THEIR DUTIES to advise the Public and Our Family it has been the State’s Operations and the State’s Inadequate Dam Causing all the Damages. SEE The Doctrine of Fraudulent Concealment also known as the Doctrine of Concealment. Said Concealment Doctrine TOLLS the Statutes of Limitations for TORTS resulting from such Negligent and Intentional Operations such as the ANNUAL INTENTIONAL LAKE GEORGE FLUSHINGS and DRAWDOWNS.
As a direct and proximate result The Witham’s Marina Docks and Income Derived therefrom were greatly damaged. The result of that economic damage and loss the Witham’s Lost the Following.
A. 600 + Acres of Valuable Timber and Minerals real Estate at Harris Bay.
B. The Witham Family Marina today known as Harris Bay Yacht Club
C. The Witham Family Home
D. Use and Enjoyment of the above
E. Clifford Witham because of the Emotional Stresses and Physical Distress died of a massive heart attack shorty thereafter.
F. Clifford and Anita Witham’s eldest Son took His Own Life.
G. Mrs. Anita Witham and the Family suffered significant Financial Deprivation and Public Ridicule and Shame being labeled in the Area as Financial Deadbeats.
The State of New York DEC Divisions of Forests and Lands in a Deal with State Judge Richard Bartlett and DEC Family Members acquired the 600+ acres shortly thereafter.
The Withams suffered a loss of a very valuable Family Asset. Today just ONE of the Docks ( there are 275 of them ) can be purchased for $100,000.00. The 600 acres and the Home and the Marina is at fair market value worth many MILLIONS of Dollars.
This letter is to demand from the State of New York and the other responsible Parties of an amount of $20,000,000.00 in damages , out of pocket and economic losses inflicted upon the Family. That amount would as well compensate for the Very Significant Physical and Emotional Distress and Hurt caused to the Family.
I strongly urge New York State to make some effort to compensate this Family for the Grossly Negligent Operations, The Intentional Operations and Failure to Communicate to the Witham Family The State’s Destructive Operations on the Lake George Mill Pond …… During the Winter Ice Sheet Drawdowns and Flushings. Said Drawdowns and Flushings are ONGOING as the Dam remains Unsafe and Inadequate according to the State and US Government’s Inspection Reports.

REPLY ELECTRONICALLY ONLY TO
FOR THE STATE AND IT’s BENEFACTORS
Knew or Should Have Known General Cases WITHAM CRIAMINAL COMPLAINT 3/17/2017
Regarding the Accrual of Civil and Criminal Cases …… Knew or Should Have Known WHO the Party Responsible for the Vandalism and Mischief as well as the Tortuous Conduct is ESSENTIAL.
Knowing for instance of a CAR Theft is pretty easy …… Knowing Who Stole it Is a Bit more Involved.
Knowing of the Boating Accident on Lake George involving the Death of the McClure Girl was very obvious …… Discovering Who was the Owner and Operator of the West Boat was NOT known at the time of the Accident by the victims.
Clifford and Anita Witham nor the Family had ANYWAY to KNOW that the Lake Drawdowns were being done INTENTIONALLY By Conservation Employees. Simply Stated the Purposeful Lake Flushings and Drawdowns being Intentionally Done by the Conservation Department was the SOLE CAUSE of the repeated Destruction of the Witham Marina. Who in Their Right Mind would PURPOSELY Lower and Raise MILLIONS of Tons of Lake Ice ?
Bottom Line the EVCON Folks never Notified ANYONE and Clifford and Anita Witham had NO WAY to determine that EVCON was intentionally Moving the Ice and Snow Mass down 2 feet and then up 4 Feet ……. NON OF THE Nine Municipalities on Lake George have released any Notifications or Advisories NOR Has DEC or the State Attorney General produced any either.
Criminal Concealment of Vandalism and Criminal Mischief SUCH AS PLEAD and ALLEGED in the David Decker Westbrook Matters reveals ……. Concealment of Crimes TOLLS THE RUNNING OF THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS.
See LaFave, Israel and King CRIMINAL PROCEDURE Section 18.5
The 46% inadequate release rate PLAUSIBLE EXCUSE for the Drawdowns has only recently become known to Me. I now KNOW that the Intentional Acts by EVCON were causing the Lake Ice to CRUSH and SHRED as well as subject Mother and Dad’s Docks to the DESTRUCTIVE FORCES the Conservation Commission and New York’s Lawyers KNEW it was causing. They knew that the State’s Own Actions were destroying Islands, Shoreline, Docks and Boat Houses.
Basil Seggos, the State AG and the Conservation Commission, DEC / EVCON were Knowing Acting with SCIENTER. They NEVER Gave any Advisories or Notices to the NINE MUNICIPALITIES on Lake George ……. NOR were Clifford or Anita Witham and Family informed of the PURPOSEFUL Lake Ice Drawdowns and The REFLOATING that was being caused by the WHOLLY INADEQUATE 46% Engineered Dam “A”.
Clifford and Anita Witham Estate
PS: Frank Leonbruno The DEC’s Lake George Island Ranger NEVER MENTIONED the State’s Purposeful Actions when He Wrote His Book of His 40 Years as an ISLAND RANGER on Lake George for DEC. Believe It
