I drove by there last Friday, and the smell of algae was so strong I couldnít stand it. I donít know how the people that live around there could stand it. Also, there was a huge slick covering about 1/3 of the main lake. I had to look twice because it look almost like ice.

One would think all that much and yuck on the bottom of the lake would be great field fertilizer.

Only thing that scares me is that the last lake they lowered the water level in, little rock lake, up by rice, nearly every deer in 20 mies died due to some bug infestation that came from that muck.
