White Rock Lake Navy To the Rescue!

The White Rock Lake Navy, with the assistance of the terrific Park & Recreation Maintenance team, had the first ever log removal day at White Rock Lake.  The Navy is made up of the Corinthian Sailing Club, The White Rock Boat Club, White Rock Rowing, Dallas United Crew, White Rock Paddle, The Spirit of Dallas and For the Love of the Lake "Padillacs".   Floating logs and logs with branches sticking out of the water have been a safety problem for a long time and this was our first collaborative effort to remove these logs.  Four power boats were used to drag the logs to shore where a Park & Rec Bobcat pulled them out and piled them up for haul off.   Mark Mihm, the Commodore from the Corinthian Sailing Club, spearheaded the operation in coordination with Park & Rec Board Member Maria Hasbany and park staff.   There were 20 volunteers from the various Navy groups to assist with the effort.   We hope to make this an annual event to help keep the lake maintained and remove these hazards.  Thank you, White Rock Lake Navy!
