The water level at Chatsworth Lake is down several feet. A large percentage of the lake bottom in now high and dry. It appears that much of the sand where the spill way runs has been washed away. I wonder if it will be an easy fix or something that may take some time to repair. Not only is the lake historic but it also among the more notable vistas in the pines. Hard to believe that the body of water started as a saw mill pond more than 250 years ago! That it later served as the Union Forge pond and as the focal point of the Chatsworth Club makes the place all the more significant.
