Disappearing Lake?

Reflection in Latimer Lake

Latimer Lake is a very small lake in South Surrey, BC. It’s located just east of a new industrial park called Campbell Heights. A friend and I were over there a couple of weeks ago, and noticed that while it was still beautiful, there was substantially less water in the lake than we remembered.

I think we’ll watch this one. It would be a shame to lose a little oasis like this.

The area had an environmental study done on it before the development started. You’d think they would have had a plan for maintaining the lake, either from natural runoff, or through drainage via settling ponds in the development itself.

Guess we’ll see. Perhaps it will fill again with the winter rains.
