Is the county managing Lake Wazee to death? A lake that was famous among scuba divers for it's 40-60 feet visibility is now only a little clearer than a mud puddle. For me, this demise began in the Spring of 2016. After traveling five hours to get here, we discovered that the water was cloudy due to the lake management dumping a silty sand at most of the access points...to make beaches. The second trip of 2016 we discovered that the water was cloudy due to the lake management vacuuming out weeds and clouding up the lake with vacuum exhaust. The third trip wasn't much better, but we didn't see a reason why. Now this year 2017, our first trip to Wazee and the visibility was no better than 2-4 feet.
