Meadow Grounds Lake Update

 
Visiting the Meadow Grounds Lake Saturday evening, I was surprised to find the water level virtually unchanged from that of a week ago.  This is the first since the PFBC began lowering the lake back on March 4th that a week has passed with no change.
 
During the past week we did receive significant rainfall however considering how the lake has dropped through earlier rain events I feel reasonably certain that no additional stop logs were removed. 
 
This may be mere coincidence or it may indicate that something is afoot.  As I have reported here there is considerable push-back from the public and the Fulton County Commissioners concerning the PFBC's plan to drain the lake.  I find it interesting that the PFBC has recently (May 8th) reconsidered their plan to drain Coyler Lake in Center County and instead will maintain it 17 feet down from full pool until funding is made available to complete the repairs.  Could this be what is happening here at the Meadow Grounds?  Time will tell.

It would be wonderful if the public outrage has had an effect and they don't drain any more! But as you say, time will tell.
