Return of a old Friend: The Meadow Grounds Lake

Nearly 8 years ago the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission began the draw-down of the nearby Meadow Grounds Lake.  After much behind the scenes work, construction finally began in early May of this year and is finally drawing to a close.  I captured these images during a visit December 28 when the construction crew appeared to be nearing the end. 

Refilling is slated to begin this winter continuing into the spring.

I’m assuming that this is all good news. Will it be stocked with fish?
