Hulen Meadows pond needs help

    I have fished in the Big Wood River north of Ketchum and trained my retriever in the Hulen Meadows pond. I am pleased to read the stories in the Express about the project to restore the river’s flow into the pond and repair drop structures, now nonfunctioning, which were installed to decrease the river’s velocity and encourage deposition of sediment in appropriate places.
    This project is a widely collaborative process with ample opportunity for review and comment by the public. It would be very nice to see the quality of the water in the pond improved, for failure to do so will condemn the ponds to complete stagnation and make the area unpleasant to visitors, especially in hot summer months.
    Restoration of the Hulen Meadows pond has been talked about for a decade or more.  It is great to see the city of Ketchum, the BLM and other organizations such as the Wood River Land Trust, on whose board I have served for 10 years, working together to finally do something.
