Save the Lake Campaign
In June 2016 a sink hole developed on the east of Children’s Lake in Boiling Springs. Inspection of the sink hole, spillway, and collapse of the limestone wall all indicate that the dam is in very poor condition and must be replaced. Without the dam there is no lake. Other areas of the lake that need work include: Silt removal (the last silt removal was done in 1995), storm drains directly entering the lake, habitat and cover, aerators (oxygen poor water), and possible addition of a wheelchair accessible pier.
Save The Lake Campaign is a grass roots, community advocacy effort to coordinate awareness and fundraising efforts to save Children’s Lake…by replacing the dam and improving the lake. Let’s join this community effort to save Children’s Lake.
