Residents meet for Atascadero Lake Clean-up Day

Posted: Tuesday, Oct 15th, 2013


Paula McCambridge/Atascadero News Volunteer Arline Weems of Atascadero talks with Atascadero City Engineer Russ Thompson Saturday during Atascadero Lake Clean-up Day.


ATASCADERO — A small group of residents put their might and their hearts into cleaning brush and litter from Atascadero Lake Saturday.

“I saw the sign the other day when I was walking — I’ve been wanting to get involved,” said Arline Weems of Atascadero, originally of Santa Margarita. “I’ve come here since I was a kid and we used to swim in the lake.”

The lake has seen some hard times this year with drought conditions causing the body of water to shrink to a puddle of its former self and facing a massive fish die-off this summer due to low oxygen levels.

Residents living near the lake became dismayed, they said, watching the lake disappear and decided to form a sort of a lake-booster group this spring calling itself, Friends of the Atascadero Lake.
