I just spoke with the Dept of Public Works and have the following information to share:
- DPW will begin draining the lake today or tomorrow. It will take a week or so for the lake to drain and fully dry out before we can have a clean up event.
- The Parks Conservancy will coordinate some volunteer events in the coming weeks to assist with the cleaning of the lake
- DPW will not be able to work alongside volunteers but will work on separate days to further clean out the lake.
- These events will be permitted given people are practicing social distancing and all the proper safety measures which will be shared on our website and on site at the lake during the event.
Please stay tuned for a date and additional information coming soon.
