CELINA — Updates about West Beach were provided Saturday morning during the Lake Improvement Association’s monthly meeting.
Theresa Dirksen, the agriculture and natural resources director for Mercer County, said dredging was completed last week and and this week, lake officials intended to collect settlement samples to determine the phosphorus levels in the sediment so they can determine the correct rates of phoslock to add.

Dirksen said she was hopeful that treatments could begin this week.
