Lake Nasworthy On Its Own
The pumps at Twin Buttes North Pool stood silent today. Given all three protective baskets were exposed to air, the pumps might not start again anytime soon. The pipe would need to be run a fair distance to find deeper water. Lake Nasworthy might be on its own until rains come.
It looked like the city pumped two to three feet of water from Twin Buttes in the last month. Should the city have a runoff event the size and scope of last September, these pumps would be at risk for flooding. I'm sure the city has a plan to remove them in such a case. I'm praying for healing rain and that our lake replenishment begins in earnest.
