Fate of Sherman Lake Debated

State officials are wondering what to do about the lake that disappeared last month in Newcastle.

Sherman Lake drained in early October when an earthen dam was breached, turning the lake back into a salt marsh. Some local homeowners want the lake restored, while others prefer to let Mother Nature have her way.
[Richard] Gutek, a mason, sees a brighter side to what some might view as a natural disaster. He notes that property owners will now have boat access to the ocean at high tide and can still fish the stream, pursuing saltwater species. [Link]
