Erosion Techniques

New techniques are being used at Mozingo Lake to combat recent erosion problems.

One new method involves cutting woody vegetation such as locus and hedge trees that have invaded part of the lake's grasslands. The trees will then be placed at some of the lake's banks to act as a wave break. Mozingo lake manager grant Evans says the technique will stabilize the shore line and prevent further erosion. The lake is down about 3 feet from last year due to factors such as strong winds that bash water against the lake's banks. Evans says the new technique will help with water quality and should have no impact on lake goers.
