Austin Lake Bulkhead Update

Dear South Shore Harbour MUD7 Taxpayer and Residents,

The MUD7 Board of Directors has selected Shirley and Sons to complete the installation of a new bulkhead around the perimeter of Austin Lake according to the recommendations of our District Engineer. The Board of Directors is working with the District Engineer to address some of the erosion concerns around the lake. Also, an arborist will be used to trim or remove any trees as required to complete the project.

The details of this project can be found on this website under the RESOURCES/PROJECTS/AUSTIN LAKE tabs or at this link:

The district engineer is in the process of setting up the preconstruction meeting with the contractor and finalizing the contract which the board expects to sign at the next monthly meeting. After this meeting we will have a better understanding of when the project will start and how long it will take and provide some updates via our website or email blast.

To reiterate the points from the previous letter sent out with the HOA, the paths around Austin Lake will be impacted using heavy equipment and movement of machinery and materials, including increased noise and uneven ground in the area. Some path areas may be closed for safety purposes. The District, via our engineer, will monitor and inspect the project daily during active construction.

The Board very much understands that the community may have concerns and that there will be an inconvenience to the residents during construction. We believe the result will be worth the temporary inconvenience in order to provide a lasting bulkhead that is both aesthetically pleasing and well-constructed. The Board wishes to thank the community in advance for its patience during the construction process and asks that if you have any questions, to please contact the District’s office at

Thank you and warm regards,

Board of Directors South Shore Harbour MUD No. 7
