To the casual observer, the 177-year-old lake is a picture of beauty and serenity—the water level seems curiously low, but you may not immediately notice the signs that could shatter the idyllic scene at any time. This month, I visited various sites around the lake with Jim Zehringer, Director of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). When you know what to look for, signs of serious structural problems are everywhere—trees and cracks deeply rooted in the lake's dam, seepage and persistent wet areas, and other signs of deterioration.
