Murky water became a point of contention between members of the Ida Lake Association and Douglas County officials during the county board meeting on June 11.


County Drainage and Ag Inspector Tom Anderson explained a tile repair is needed in County Ditch 23 off County Road 82 to south of Blue Jay Way in Garfield. The blocked ditch is retaining water that is not able to pass through the 12-inch tile currently in place.
