News from Beaver Lake…

Now filed with crystal clear water, the newly restored basin looks exceptionally beautiful. The rocky outcrop has been cleaned and is now visible at the bottom of the lake.
 
The machinery has left the site and the landscaping surrounding the lake will resume next year. Come visit and have a picnic or take a simple stroll!
 
Watch the video on our YouTube channel tracing the work carried out since the beginning of the project in July, 2012.
