UPDATE: February 3, 2017 – Lake Alert for Lake Dot – LIFTED


Due to a blockage in a sanitary line near the intersection of West Robinson Street and Beggs Avenue, approximately 200 gallons of sanitary waste has made its way into Lake Dot.

City crews have already performed a cleanup of the immediate area and the stormwater system and warning signs have been posted around Lake Dot.

All activities on the lake, including irrigation, are to cease until the City has deemed it safe.

For further information regarding the sewer discharge, please contact Athena Tipaldos, Wastewater Compliance Manager, at [email protected]net.  For water quality questions, please contact Lisa Lotti, Stormwater Compliance Manager, at [email protected].

Side Note: Lake Dot was once formally referred to on maps as “the mud hole with the big alligator,” as we wrote about in a previous Did You Know-town column, HERE.

This is what 200 gallons looks like.
