A Sight Rarely Seen

The water level draw down of the lake is nearly complete and the sight is really something interesting.  This draw down has happened to allow access to the bottom of the lake for installing the new city sewer line.  The lake should be refilled by the time school lets out next June:  in plenty of time for summer fun.  In the mean time, it is just really something to see.

A word of caution:  don’t be tempted to go out and walk on the lake.  The soil is pretty much loose silt.  One person has already had to be rescued:  a construction worker who sank up to his arms.  Take care also with your pets.
