Lake County has started an Adopt-a-lake program, the Orlando Sentinel says. People can sign up to adopt a lake, taking water samples, cleaning up litter and the like. Volunteers are trained.
I think this is brilliant! More counties should invite citizens to adopt bodies of water.
For the past week and a half where I live, it’s been raining hard except for maybe two days. Even so, all this rain hasn’t been enough to help Lake Okeechobee, the Sun-Sentinel reports. Lake O remains at a historic low.
That’s really something considering Lake Manatee and the Manatee River overflowed, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. The dammed lake got so high that water managers had to release water into the river.
Seems the rain somehow avoided Lake O?
