Lake O Effect


One day the aquatic playground is aqua blue and inviting, then gradually turns brown. You gear up, your anticipation rises only to be met with a frown.

So you open the beach chair & hope for the Best that shortly Nature will cure this mess! But the Tide rolling out is only temporary and cleanses so little and it requires days to speed up the Sandy White Beach riddle.

Visitors arrive from across the street or across the Nation and borders to our North Only to see the Brackish waves go back and forth. Our only hope is for a solution to prevent those ‘gates’ from Lake O to pollute us again & again.
