over the placid waters of the 80-acre Lake
is a 70-foot high, 1,500-foot long dam - a product
of state-of-the-art design and engineering representing innumerable hours
of planning and years of hard work to ensure it be the very
best. Overall construction of both the dam and the ground over which
the lake would rest was completed in July of 2000. Impounding of water
began the following month and within 2-1/2 years the lake was filled
to capacity. Now, with over 300,000 cubic yards of earth holding back
the waters of several springs that form the headwaters of the McLendon
Basin, the result is a body of water that is at once both extraordinarily
beautiful and ecologically sound
It preserves the intended pristine nature of our community, and yet offers
an environment featuring countless recreational opportunities for residents
and their guests.
