Hope is not a plan
I have noticed that the city is pumping water into Lake Weatherford on a regular basis. It makes me wonder if anyone has done the math comparison on digging a deeper lake, maybe putting in a new one somewhere, or at the very least dredging out the one we have. The north end of Lake Weatherford when full is at best only a couple of feet deep for many acres. That seems like such a waste of area. This area of the lake is now dry, and could be barricaded off and dug out. Also the level of the lake when full seems lower than it was in the past, maybe that is just me remembering it wrong, but it does seem like the level could be raised by about a foot without much cost at all. If and when it ever does fill up again we would have more water and wouldn’t be buying it from other water supplies, or at least as much of it. More people are moving into this community daily and we need a sustainable plan to supply them with the water they will be using, not just hanging our hopes on the rain that never seems to come.
