Spring Rains Gone from South Pool
Three weeks of pumping dropped the South Pool to levels seen last August.
The City effectively drew down all the water from this spring's rain. I expect to be able to windsurf the South Pool for a few more weeks.
The North Pool won't rise near the five feet promised by City leaders. Water Czar Will Wilde said the goal was to get the North Pool up six more inches to get proper pressure for flow into Lake Nasworthy.
City Council wants to "master develop" land around Lake Nasworthy. If Twin Buttes and O.C. Fischer dry up, Nasworthy will be it. How much will master development restrict public access to the water at Nasworthy? It remains to be seen.
