Plug Porter sink and help protect the aquifer

Published May 29, 2008 (Opinion)
Porter sinkhole penetrates the clay layer that allows the lake to be perched. Water flowing down the sinkhole, when the sinkhole has water over it, has been measured at 7 million to 9 million gallons per day. This loss of water down the sinkhole amounts to as much as 3 feet of water level per year that could be filling the lake.
