Watershed Authority Hears Updates on Projects


HUNTINGDON (August 28) — Carroll County Watershed Authority members were given an update on projects, events, and grants involving the Carroll County 1000-Acre Recreation Lake.

A state Local Parks and Recreation Fund grant in the amount of $250,000 was awarded for the construction of walking trails on the dam/RV park side of the lake, a picnic pavilion at the RV park, and a parking lot for the walking trail. The grant is a 50/50 match between the state and the Watershed Authority, which can use local labor for an in-kind match.

The first Dixie Triathlon is Saturday, September 15 at the lake and the surrounding roadways. It is named in memory of the late Dr. Volker Winkler, who was an avid athlete. The event is expected to have over 200 participants.

Bassmasters held its junior high bass-fishing tournament on the lake. Carroll County Chamber of Commerce indicates 147 room-nights were booked in the county’s two motels, the Best Western of McKenzie and the Heritage Inn in Huntingdon.

Lakewood Capital Group, real estate developers around the lake, recently had a public sale of 18 parcels of land at the lake in the Angler’s Point subdivision. All lots sold within 11 minutes.

A recently acquired triple-wide office building was moved from Toone, Tennessee to the lake, where is it is being renovated and porches added. It will be used for meeting space.
