Merryman firm, which did the spillway. Water already began to pour into the site and it can be seen just to the left of the machinery. The lake, when it is completely filled, will cover about 53 acres and be 15 feet deep in some places. Water comes from drainage of about 11,000 acres of land in the area. The area is a total of 114 acres and the lake will be stocked with fish when it is completely filled, which is expected to take a number of months, depending upon the amount of rainfall received here. By Tuesday, about five acres or so was under water. County Engineer H.-M. "Slim" Smith reported between 12,000 and 13,000 shrubs and trees have been planted along the west side of the area. It will be seeded and improved later this summer. Exclusive Advance Photo by Mike Stillman.
