- My Summary
I hear stories of how good the visibility was in Lake Tenkiller back in the 80s. When we were going there in the 90s to teach, we usually had less than 10ft on a normal day. There are many fingers getting pointed but the bottom line is we have failed to protect that resource. Actions are being taken to recover Tenkiller but it will take time.
My focus is keeping Beaver Lake alive for divers. If we loose Beaver, we lose the lakes below it too. If that happens, where do we go to dive? Doing lake cleanups is a good gesture but it takes more than that. If you are looking for an organization that is focused on Beaver Lake, look at ABLE. I was recently asked to join the board of this organization and I am very proud of what they are doing.
