Plans are being made to plug a sinkhole in Salem Lake that is draining the 98-acre city-owned reservoir.
Engineers located the depression last month. They believe it is connected to another sinkhole first thought to be a spring feeding the lake.
The lake supplies drinking water to both city and county residents and is open several months of the year for recreational use. It was closed to fishing and boating in August so engineers could lower the water level and locate the swallow hole – a depression formed by a collapse of a cavern roof.
