A view from the dam breast shows the fresh green vegetation beginning to cover the former lake bed.
Areas near the northern access point are now supporting considerable new growth. Apparently the sediment deposited on the lake floor held a good stock of viable seed.

Lush grasses stabilize the soil along the stream. With the passing of each day the threat of significant erosion and sedimentation of Roaring Run downstream of the dam diminishes.
While many of us morn the loss of this Fulton County treasure some visitors show their disdain for our public spaces. Not only were these beverage cans strewn about but the recently erected sign at the northern access point has been removed and someone had driven into the lake bed cutting large ruts into the soft soil.
Whether one agrees or disagrees with the PFBC decision to drain the lake makes no difference; it is no excuse to vandalize and litter of our public property.
