Reflections On The Lake
"The biggest challenge on the lake is that those old dirt roads weren’t designed with drainage in mind. When I first started this job in the 1970’s most of the camps were on stilts or on cement blocks. The water would run off of the road and just go right under the camps. People get upset about the runoff hitting their foundations but the water is going where it has always gone."
